Open during COVID times. Nice easy loop trail. A lil muddy in some spots at the beginning. Not a ton of spots to wade in the water off the trail but we found a few areas to dip our toes. Not very crowded at all on a Sat. morning at 10:30 a.m. Will comeback another time with bathing suits and inner tubes as it looks like quite a few people are headed to do that close by.

A nice wooded trail. Can either stay on a flat path or add a loop that involves some uphill hiking.

It was the Great trail and weather. It’s easy to hike and run. I ran it in 30 min.

Good trail for running or walking

River was high, so the trail along the water was unpassable. We took the extended trail and challenged ourselves on the hill, and it was well worth it. Worked on strategy to cross muddy areas.

Quick hike close to the city, river views, a few parts almost washed out and some mud, but nothing outlandish. Pretty quiet even though it’s close to the road and much more parking than on the Cochran shoals side. Trail ends rather abruptly in a mini-bamboo forest.

Decent trail off the interstate. I got there around 8am and the parking lot was halfway full of people getting ready to hit the river. But the trails were pretty barren. There is a nice loop with decent elevation. If you are lucky like I was, you'll get all the way to point 7 and realize you have to turn all the way around because of the huge family of trees that are blocking the path lol. Your heart will thank you. The part that loops by the river is gorgeous. There is a lot of bamboo. I saw lots of chipmunks, no deer.

Nice little trail right off the interstate. Short distance, nice little loop. There is an unmarked trail that veers off and ends out at a street in one of the neighborhoods. If you follow that there's a washout that goes down to old stone walls that have collapsed. Definitely worth a try.

Amazing scenery! You can either up the trail or run on the lower trail close to the river. Great views of the river and far away from the highway that’s it seems so quiet. Perfect for a hammock on the water.

Great for a quick evening hike when you don't have a lot of time but want to maximize your workout. Beautiful scenery, lots of deer, cool breeze from the river. The best part is you can't hear the traffic and this trail is right next to 285.

Great evening hike for two novice hikers. We even found wild strawberries off the P8 point!

It was $5 to enter the trail. With all the free trails out there, I don’t see a purpose in paying $5 to walk less than 2 miles.
