Nice trail close to the main road. One part of it is not marked well so download the maps for offline use first.

A very easy trail which seems to be part logging road and canal ditch trail. It circles around a lovely church which has picnic tables and nice views in the back. Not for any scenic walk, just a peaceful, easy walk for some fresh air and outdoor walk. There is a short, rocky part which would be hard for a stroller or those at risk of twisting ankles but once off of the logging road, very level. All the more popular trails are too populated during the Covid-19 so this was perfect for us to get fresh air and enjoy the churches beautiful flowers and water feature with a cross. The trail is also marked.

Tried this trail for the first time today on mountain bikes, not sure about the trail markers, could use improvement, we guessed a few times. The initial downhill was a bit rocky but doable, the rest was a very pleasant and easy ride next to the ditch/canal (not a river) last leg uphill was a GREAT workout, we'll do this one again.

Loved it! Nice walk down take a look around and then an ev ed n steady climb to find the most excellent breeze at top of hill.

Fun. But dont wander too far off the trails, there are a few big camps.
