What a great trail!! Wide, uncrossed, flat, shady and lots to see. My 16 yr old son and I rode it today and it just could not have been nicer. Good 20 miles with nice stop offs. Will definitely go again.

A great trail with wonderful views of the river. We love taking our dogs here. They really enjoy it. Super easy and you can walk as far or as short as you feel up to.

Beautiful warm spring day, 12 mile bike ride. Purple flowers and white sicamore trees where beautiful! Easy straight path. Nolan’s ferry and aquaduct were explored. Passed hikerrs and a few joggers. Water on river was pristine and full. Saw a few fisherman.
