The trail was hard to find so we will need to go back on a cooler day but we saw lots of wild flowers and moths. Beautiful area next to an industrial site. Never would have known it was there without All Trails. Kids got hot so we had to turn back but not before we got some pictures on the hanging swing.

Nice paved trail. Some good hills and length. Very good for whatever type of activity you will use it for. Also saw 4 deer foraging along trail.

easy Trail to find. It's right off the road. However the trail itself is not very well marked. we got lost a little bit,

the trail is not used very often and therefore we saw a lot more Wildlife than a well-worn trail.

I would rate the trail a three and a half. However our dog would rate it about a four and a half. very private, lots of little animals to chase.

there's a swing and a picnic bench at the beginning of the trailhead which would be very nice romantic afternoon if you're with someone other than your dog

We kept to the paved trail with our dog - this was well-maintained and full of runners, walkers, and cyclists. We had no problems finding parking. The paved trail was very pleasant for a walk with plenty of unpaved trail options branching off for a more challenging hike/run/ride. Consistently well-marked at each quarter mile, with curve and hill signs as well, I would definitely recommend the Riverwalk, especially for families!

Great trail to walk if you love a suburb setting. A few hills to get your cardio going and great views of the Catawba River with the trail ending at an old railroad bridge crossing the river.

Trail is ok, difficult to find a parking place. Unless this changes, I won't be back.

Great! I hiked through the woods on the 2nd most difficult trail and saw 3 deer! For anyone looking for a little more challenging walk or hike than the paved trail, they have some nice trails through the woods!

Pretty busy place on a late Sat morning. Watching the misc boaters, small wildlife & the plethora of dog walkers made the partly shaded walk on the paved path, that much more enjoyable.

It looks so much better now that they have cleared out a better view of the river. I love that you can take the bike trails off of the paved path to get a more nature-like feel.

Once off the pavement, the actual mountain bike trail is not very well maintained. With all the low-canopy saplings, high-grass and weeds, and narrow track, it's nearly impossible to break 10mph anywhere on the dirt.

Blue and Black Diamond take great advantage of the terrain, giving smooth transitions, but visibility is limiting. Bring your own machete and widen the trail by 2ft to see where you're going.

One of the longer trails that runs along the river also runs along the edge of a golf course at several points it would seems that the mile markers that they have along the trail are incorrect however there is much wildlife if you walk quietly and also BlackBerries during season all along the trail throughout. In a single outing I saw multiple squirrels, rabbits, 2 deer and several hawks in a single day. Itwas a very enjoyable trip and BlackBerries to boot.

Very well maintained. Completely paved, more of a track than trail. Clear mile markers (and markers for 911 location too). Enough of an incline to give us "just starting to exercise couch potatoes" a work out. Beautiful scenery along the river, lots of nature - one family on the trail said they had seen a beaver, we saw heron, other birds and lots of turtles. Plenty of shade and benches if you want to just sit an take in nature for a few minutes. Treasure to have here in town.

Not as well maintained as we had hoped. Be careful on boardwalks, there is some wood rot. Lots of dragon and damselflies for photography.
