Short loop, about 15 min walk. Well shaded with views of the river. Best oxbow view is from the pavilion.

Nice trail and it offers some views of the river. It’s rather short, but well marked.

Did this while doing a larger trail and it was nice. Didn’t see anyone on this small trail and got to watch kayakers go by in the water. Has some old nature signs so kind of interesting to read.
