Description

This short trail goes from the bridge over McDonald Creek and follows it downstream through the woods. It's a nice level trail that leads to an overlook at a fantastic bend in the creek.

This trail can be paired with the Apgar Bike Trail for a nice loop.

Nice easy hike. Good views of the river. There is a beaver lodge on one of the river bends.
