I would recommend hiking this in the winter or early spring, as the trail is overgrown in several spots. Spotted some Poison Oak right next to the trail. Also a couple of big trees down to maneuver around. The best part of the trail is by the river and along the sewer right of way. Going all the way to the dam at West Point is worth the extra 0.4 miles. You can also stop at the old mill. There is a picnic table just over the footbridge and 50 yards down the paved path. Also watched a little bit of a cricket match at Old Farm Park along the route, which also has picnic tables. Good place for a snack and rest. Penny's bend offers some nice wild flowers and open space.
