The trail is great. Paved and shaded the entire way. But I would start off Osterhaut not Industrial because there is a proper parking lot there.

We did not plan on going the way we did but having everything interconnected is nice. BRING BUG SPRAY. Also the weird plastic dock on the bog walk makes you conduct massive amounts of static electricity. Not an actual deterrent, but still weird.

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.

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.
