Nice paved trail, great for biking, but not quite what I was looking for. Did make a nice hike though. Lots of birds if your a bird watcher.

This trail is very pleasant for riding your bike, especially if you are a novice or are rediscovering cycling. The wooded surroundings make it a peaceful experience, and the trail is not overly busy, even midday on a Saturday. Since the trail is mostly level asphalt, I recommend it for a leisurely, relaxing ride.

More of a biking trial than a hiking trail. Path is very flat and paved nicely. Great over looks to see wildlife.

Nice 4 mile point to ponit trail. Trail is paved and fairly flat making it good for a leisurely bike ride, roller blade, jog, or walk. In a wooded area so trail fairly quiet except for occasional train can hear passing by in distance occasionally. Seems mostly likely not a heavily used trail, was some walkers/riders but not enough to have to constantly be on guard. I probably will do this again with my daughter at some point.
