Family-friendly short shaded trail for serenity and a peek or two of the river at Caswell Memorial State Park. The River Bend trail offers a flat windy walk in this riparian habitat. There are a few overlook points that allow visitors to take a peek over the river bends, and part of the trail is ADA accessible. There are a few benches at the junction area with the Gray Fox Trail marking the end of 0.25-mile ADA accessibility, and one has the option to take the extra loop around the 0.4-mile Crow's Loop Trail.Show more
