This hike takes us through a variety of forest vegetation, including some salmonberry bushes, and features a park bench overlooking the canyon at the halfway  point, where we stop for a rest break.  Excellent, clean restrooms are at both the meeting place and the trailhead parking lot.  There is also an outhouse at the one mile point of the trail.  A short stroll to a viewpoint overlooking Mud Mountain Dam is an option, if time permits, at the end of the hike.  No parking pass is required at either the meeting place or the trailhead.
