Comes out on a beatiful grassy area at the Northwest River
A nice hike that anyone can take. Loved seeing the Northwest River at the end of the trail!
The trail is one of those wide, flat, too easy trails, but there is a much more challenging trail running between the trail and the river. It does not have a name or show up on the trail maps so I guess it is just considered part of the Shuttle Trail. When you get down to the southern end there is everything from a soda machine to the beautiful Northwest River.
It is a wide level trail all the way to the beautiful Northwest River. We paralleled it most of the way down on a little foot path trail along the park lake.
