nice little dayhike. one of mygo to spots just to get outside. very easy trail , well marked. Usually do this trail if i dont have a buddy. bring water and a hat as most of the trail is in the open along the river.

I'm basing the review as a hiker. I saw several horseback riders and an off-road biker, for which the trails seem better suited. Hiking, the trails aren't very scenic and tend to meander until coming to a sudden end, whether reaching a neighborhood or simply stopping at some point. So you turn around and try another. Eventually I ended up along Old Celery Farm Road (the main portion of Levee Trail) which has a nice view of the prairie and an observation deck. I certainly do not regret the hike, but it lacks the beautiful views you can find in other nearby trails, or the feel of "destination" you want in a there and back trail.
