I live off of this trail and it’s pretty casual. I bike and roller blade on this trail about everyday. For roller blading it stinks crossing the street and there are multiple areas where it’s pretty rugged for roller blades and makes it hard to keep pace. But for biking it’s pretty casual and scenic visual of the creek during whole bike ride. *Be aware of some of the individuals that walk this trail in the evening and night, can make one uncomfortable.*

I biked this trail west from Marquette Park to Emeis golf course. It was about 7 miles, very pretty with numerous benches strategically placed under shade trees. The creek was crossed numerous times and most roads had underpasses. There were 3 road crossings and I loved the fact that when you pressed the crossing button cars were immediately stopped to allow you to cross without waiting more than a few seconds. I am told this trail extends and equal distance East and hope to explore that section as well since most trails along the Mississippi are underwater this week.

I walk on this trail throughout the year, although I skateboard on this trail during fall and spring and I appreciate that my skateboard rolls easily on the surface with no sidewalk sections. Many water birds are in the small ponds and creek.

Nice, easy trail. Gets buggy in summer. Watch out for hooligans; if walking or biking alone, take a big dog with you.

We live near this trail and it is a great place to take your dogs for a walk/run. It's in the heart of the quad cities so it's not the wilderness just a nice place for a walk.
