Walking

Paved, easy walk. not a quiet nature trail, but still TONS on wildlife next to the highway. fences divide the road and path.

Easy paved walking trail. Great for the dog, and no mud after recent rain.

Easy trail, paved walkway, flat, good for strollers/wheelchairs/roller blades. Easy bike trail for kids. Good place to view hawks and other birds. Cool to see planes taking off. Downside is the noise and lack of privacy, runs right along I 81.

We live less than a mile from this trail so it’s our local go-to. Dog and stroller friendly, it’s paved and the brush is well maintained. Downsides are its closeness to 81 and the thruway, I also would not recommend walking past dusk.

If looking for short trail this is good, doesn't loop around , it just ends, boring and too close to thruway , it is clear of bushes and kept up nice, suggest to bring a buddy when on this trail.

It is a great bicycle trail along interstate 81 northbound between 7th north and Mattydale.
