Very easy trail. The visitor center is really nice with lots of things to see! Beautiful views of the lake!
This trail was paved, wide, and fairly well-maintained (some rotting timber on small bridges). The majority of the trails were shady, and it wasn't crowded at all. Par stations were in good condition, also. Maps are faded and (mildly) vandalized, those could use replacing.
For someone that likes to hike all the time this Trail can be a little boring because it's so easy, but there are some cool things to look at.
Pretty cool trail. It's best to go in the summer time because it is very shady, you don't get a lot of sun. But I like all the workout stations and multiple trails that you can walk
Bona Dea is a great system of Trails. There are several different trails to walk, jog or bike. Lots of trees provide shade. The trails are paved and fairly even. There are a few areas where tree roots are causing the trail to rise and crack but over all it is a good place to walk. Birds and squirrels are seen regularly. Snakes have been seen but the trail is wide enough to get away from them. Alligators are in the area occasionally. All in all a very good place to walk or bike or jog.
Great multi-use trail located in Russellville along the lake.
