Though this trail is probably better experienced on bike, I enjoyed the out and back walk. I combined the entire length of this hike with the Steigerwald National Wildlife Refuge walk, making for a fairly long round trip at a fast pace. The river and gorge views were especially enjoyable. It was cool to see Crown Point and the Vista House from a new long distance perspective. Back to bikes though, keep in mind that the nature trail connected on the east end does not allow bikes, running or dogs since it is a wildlife refuge. Unfortunately the dike trail was completely flooded, so I didn't get to explore that cool feature.
