The overview calls this a hiking trail, but, it's a muti-use trail primarily used by bicyclists in summer and snowmobiler's in winter. It's one of the first Rails to Trails trail, so it's railroad grade.very flat. It's a great trail for cycling, rollerblading, jogging etc.. It has many rest stops along the way so It's great for family rides. I guess you could "hike" on it if you were looking for an extremely easy hike.
