Perfect if you’ve got little ones (paved for strollers, smooth for little feet) and is SHADED for those hot summer days. Bring bug spray and take the little gravel trail off to the floating path. It’s cute.

Nice paved trail. Dog liked it, lots of trees. Good for biking for rollerblading too

Paved trail suitable for road biking and running. Shaded. Considerable road noise.

Eliason is the perfect trail to prepare for a 5K race. The distance between the south end (at Osterhout) and the north end (at Industrial Drive) is exactly 1.55 miles/2.5K. Out and back and you’re done!

I love this trail! I’m not sure about the length - it seems shorter than 3.2.

Absolutely gorgeous forest! Flowers which attract butterflies. Deer. Paved path with some hills. Well maintained. Bathrooms on the southern end.
