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.

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!

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.
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.
