We love this trail. Super easy. We have done the entire 14 miles ( all the way to the dam and back) leave early if you plan to do the whole thing.... super creepy if you don't make it back before dark, no lights along the trail.
Not a bad walk. Mostly paved road. This trail does lead to more trails for a longer hike.
This is a great BIKE trail. I believe it is from the Rails to Trails program. It's approximately 4 miles of paved trail. You can ride another 3 miles of gravel trail, which ends at a campground (with a real bathroom). Flat ride; not much incline. Mostly shaded. Not too crowded.
We stopped by the for a walk and weren't disappointed with the out and back trail. It is paved and mostly shaded with trees. The views aren't that interesting. One side is a hill with trees and sometimes you can see the river on the other side. There is a wood bridge that crosses a creek and you can walk down to look at the creek and a small dam. There is also a bathroom about 1/3 down the way from the entrance.
If you're looking for a flat, shaded trail, this is it. This is an asphalt trail which is approximately 8 miles out and back--nothing too exciting. Watch out for squirrels! This places has tons of squirrels, which means I won't be bringing my dog. There is a nice parking lot, but the lot is quite small.
Crowded but nice
I was thrilled with the scenery and how the path followed the water nearly the entire trail. I biked it all the way to the dam and camping area, which was about 8 miles one way. Easy ride since the path was either paved or gravel, with a very small part of it being off road. This was a pretty trail with lots of wildlife to see.
This there-and-back trail offers a little variety of scenery, but is mostly tree-lined and completely flat. There trail starts off bordering a marshland which disappears after the first mile or so. The first mile is also lined with signs identifying the different tree types, which makes for some interesting distractions. After that there are intermittent spots bordering farmland and nearby homes. The bridge crossing is impressive though and we saw some folks canoeing on the Cumberland the day we were out.
Decent trail. Parallels the river and crosses a really cool old railroad bridge. Only downside is most of it is on pavement so the walking is a little more high impact.
