This was a very pleasant walk that follows along the White River. I think the most interesting part of it was hearing cars drive over the old Beaver Bridge. The horrible noises that bridge makes tends to get me uneasy about driving over it. It is a very beautiful bridge though. The trail itself eventually comes to the old pylons of a railroad bridge. A small side trail heads off to the right but I didn't follow it since it had started to rain.
