This is what makes living here on the east side of Dixon so wonderful. I make use of this almost every day even in the winter. I am so sad when the meadows is closed due to deer hunting. I have to go through withdrawal. I wish we could come up with a plan so that it would be open part time for hiking.

I love walking on the bike path! Beautiful, flat walk if you stay on the paved path. If you go off on the gravel trail there are some hills and some grass paths to the sides. The gravel path takes you all the way down to the river which is beautiful. If you go in the summer don’t forget bug spray! Also, a great way to get the the gravel path is if you enter by the dog park rather than walk down the paved path to the gravel path.
