Trail follows the outside property line and the river. 2.9 miles of flat and hilly hiking.
We went on this trail with our 7-year-old daughter. It's easy to walk, but some areas were slightly flooded because of the rain. Mosquitos were out in full force, and we were glad for repellent! The trail is notably wide (we could walk three-across) and not all that isolated (we could hear campers and see residential backyards at several points). However, the bluffs overlooking the White River were more isolated, and the views were rewarding. There are several wooden benches strategically placed along the way.
Nice trail, with some good scenery. We went right after it rained and the river was flooded. It was still raining, but the trees provided plenty of cover. We'll be back again.
I walk this trail often. It's one of my favorites. Love the part along the river, especially.
Good wide trail for walking, hiking and running. Dogs allowed on leash. Runs along a creek which can cause lots of mosquitoes in the summer/wet season. Small hills but not strenuous. +restroom facilities and water sources.
