This is actually 2 trails. I parked halfway between the two to create a loop. I went in at Waypoint 1 (Start of Trail) and finished by coming back into town at the other entrance (8th Tee of Golf Course). Baxter St. to Coho flats is well marked and well maintained. The Golf course trail....not so much. There is a sign at the Coho Flats end that states that 'This (golf course) trail is not maintained at this time'. That being said, the trail was not that bad. Hopping over downed trees in places but still good enough to take a 10 year old child.
At the end of the trail, there is river access and a picnic table. The current course of the river has left a nice swimming hole with no current as well as a sandy beach. Be aware that the river can (and does) change course and the beach/swimming hole may or may not be safe or even available. There is no garbage pick-up here. Pack out what you pack in. Popular with hikers and fishermen.From here you can access the 'Fisherman's Trail' leading to the Rod and Gun Club. Condition of trail is unknown by this user.
This tree appears to have been cleaned out in preparation to possibly becoming a canoe, some time in the past. The upper limit of the opening is clearly man-made and done so that the tree itself would not be destroyed. The bark has sealed itself around the opening and the tree is over 100 feet high and still growing.
