Great hike today. Slightly rugged in some spots, but I took 5 kids today including a 3 year old. Loved it!

An excellent trail. Make sure you start by the damn as there are typically many Bald Eagles, Blue Herron, Black Vultures, and many “shore birds”...especially March and April when the fish are spawning. Trail is well kept with great views of the Susquehanna River. Take your time and enjoy the wild flowers and many outcroppings. Eagle nests and Blue Herron nests are abundant.

The walk was easy and just listening to the sounds , water and birds made it even better. Definitely going back.

A lovely gravel trail that’s perfect for walking, running, or biking. Very flat and wide trail, definitely should be rated easy instead of moderate. Also if you’d like more views of the water I’d recommended going right when you get to the split in the trail.

This trail is wonderful for bird watching and views of the water. The main oath offers numerous water access points where you can spot herons, hawks, and eagles. Black vultures have become quite populated in this area and their numbers can be overwhelming!

Great trail from dam parking lot to Stafford, very flat and wide along the river. A nice smaller trail branches off down to the train bridge. Great mountain biking. I’m looking forward to exploring the rest of the trails.

Great fall day of hiking on our way to the camp area.

I'd say this is easy not moderate. User footwear of choice seems to be sneakers. Trail is wide, flat, topped with gravel. Parking is across the bridge on the other side of the road where folks are putting into the water.

Great scenery. Nice flat and fast trail to run. Parking is not the best but manageable. I'll be going regularly.

great scenery to go along with a challenging ride. Along the Greenway trail was a peaceful fun adventure taking you up the river. Moving on to some of the parks inner trail is where it got difficult! Amazing place, will definitely be back soon!

Very easy trail to walk with the possibility of seeing bald eagles along the way. You can extend your hike by taking some of the trails within the Susquehanna State Park (southern end of the trail) or you can hike north on the Mason Dixon Trail.

I walked the Red Trail. Great trail for those whole like to walk up and down several hills. Beautiful and peaceful walk. I plan to walk this trail again in the winter when the trees are bare in order to see the river down below. Trees block the view during the summer months.
