Great walk for the whole family. Parts of the trail by the river, in the open, and in the trees. Informative signs along the way...at least I think they were informative, I was just looking at the pretty pictures. I did see a couple deer along the way too.

This is an easy trail with lots to see. Much of it has shade from the trees but you may also have to put up with plenty of mosquitos.

Great near town hike. Visiting from Florida and it's a great first day hike to get used to elevation change. Peaceful. Several good river views with adjacent meadow. Accessible for all shapes, sizes and ages. Interesting enough to do a second loop if desired.

I walk this every morning. I see deer most every morning some times 7 or 8 at once.

There are some very pretty river views along this easy hike. I've seen deer 2 out of the 3 times I've gone, lots of bunnies and birds. The Rocky Mountain Raptor program has a facility by the parking area which is cool when they have birds in residence. Bring bug spray in warmer weather and you may want to wear pants due to the tall grass.
