Nice levee trail but also can go off on mountain bike trails which run through lush wooded area.

Love this trail! Not too hard. Perfect length. Some cool jumps and down hills. Pretty scenery. Not too rocky

The trail is really narrow as it seems like more of a bike trail than a walking trail. Two folks walking side by side is not possible. Lots of bike encounters on our walk. However, seems a little rough for bikes since there are several areas with metal objects sticking up on the trail. The surroundings are pretty and it's peaceful but there are some old rusty metal objects like barrels and mattress frames off trail. I wouldn't exclude it from future hikes but it won't be a regular either.

Walked the bike trail, but there were some barbed wire and other metal pieces embedded into the ground. Not very scenic at first, but does get better! Other than the metal pieces, very nice trail. Perfect with fall weather

Awesome trail! Flat and smooth perfect for fast riding. And side trails to check out. Pretty views of river. Lots of people though, even on a weekday evening.

very good leisurely bike ride. Great for kids only one small hill. but i do suggest going 9n an overcast day or in the early morning. Too hot on a sunny afternoon

I went walking with my puppy here! It was a relatively easy walk with not many steep hills, and we got to see some other dogs too!
