Nice way to get to the river. Short and relatively easy. A few stretches to climb but managable. I found it a bit underwhelming. The promise of a sand slide at the end was a disappointment. The climb to the top looked difficult and the people attempting to slide appeared to have to scoot their way down. We met a nice  older couple who had worked at the park 50 years ago who said there used to be much more sand. We could see plenty of rocks poking through the "slide" where they said there wasn't any when they worked there.
