Good easy walk. No steep inclines or descents. Excellent for leisurely walkers or baby strollers. The canal/river makes for some pretty views.

This would be better if I wasn’t chased by a terrifying man the last time I was there

For a walking/jogging trail absolutely beautiful for a road bike trail way too many bumps an not in some areas. The whole path just need to be repaved.

I love this trail for biking, but the last time I was there, it needed repaving to smooth out the very jarring bumps. Beautiful views.

The ride has pretty views of the Connecticut River, but is a little bumpy on a bike.

I used to live right across the street in the condos. I used to walk this trail a few times a week. It's a great spot to get near the river and enjoy some quiet. This was almost 10 years ago now, and at the time it wasn't very crowded. Not to many people seemed to know about it. If you want a nice easy walk on a week night this is a great trail.
