Excellent trail for hikers, runners, and bicycles. Primarily gravel with approximately 1 mile of paved trail.

My husband and I only walked the 1.8 mile stretch from the Weston Bend State Park down to the trail-head near Bethany. This park was gravel rather than paved, which we preferred. The trail was well-cared for and bright. It ran along the edge of Weston Bend State Park and was closely flanked by a railroad track. It had nice views of the river, a bridge over a small creek, and we saw a variety of wildlife, including squirrels and a small garter snake. I would recommend this trail for a gentle walk or bike ride.
