Excellent access. Great interaction with nature. I like the kayaking option at the lake.
Well kept and well marked. Nice trail!

This trail is fun and easy to ride. Go for a cruise next to the river and under the trees. No worries about cars (although It crosses public streets in about 3 places). Only a short hop up the hill to downtown Athens.
