Coleman River Trail Report:

This short trail follows a creek the entire length. There are many small falls and pools that make it a very interesting walk. I will rate it easy, but there are a couple of sections that require care as the trail is naturally a bit damp. There is a section that appears a small footbridge washed out, so you will navigate a gap in the path. The incline is gradual. This would be a great beginner’s hike. 1.8 miles total
