Simple but peaceful
Plenty of places to stop and picnic along this route, which is very popular with joggers, walkers, and bikers of all ages. Good fishing at both lakes as well. In the summer Howarth and Spring Lake parks both have concessions. If you're with the kids, they'll love Howarth in the summer - giant play area, carousel, train, pony rides, and boat rentals. If you're looking for a challenge, it's not here - but good for family fun.
Great way to spend the afternoon, relaxing and walking around the lakes.
