absolutely a beautiful walk. It is a great place to take a relaxing stroll and very easy for kids. the only downside is that it's pretty busy.

This is a great trail, though weekends see an uptick in traffic. It's amazingly quiet and peaceful, given how close it is to downtown (and how close it gets at one point to Riverwatch Parkway). Very picturesque with great river and canal views throughout the trail.

Surface is mainly hardpack and a pretty smooth ride. Trail is wide and flat. Fine for most bikes (hybrid, cruiser, mountain). There are also a couple sections of blacktop trail. Fun to watch the kayakers floating down the canal in the summer. Trail is partly shaded.

I enjoyed the natural sentry which kept me forming thing about how many miles of walking I did.

Great trail. Went on a weekday, so minimal foot/bike traffic. Probably heavily trafficked on weekends. Trail follows the canal. Scenic. Restrooms available.

Nice scenery, lots of water views. The trail was very wide and not too crowded for a weekend. The terrain was all flat with no stumps or rocks to trip on. You can certainly get a good distance in. However, there was a lot of sun exposure and very little shaded parts.
