If you don’t want to smoke and you want a loop there’s more than enough woods in Wayne national Forest but if you except the reality of our society in today’s world smoke is everywhere within a city or town whether it be cigarette smoke or exhaust or trash burning or oil burning In a Engine everyone wants the convenience of the modern world and they don’t complain about it when they’re driving their car etc.

I am sad to see the bad reviews. Maybe the description of 'trail running' should be removed as this is definitely completely paved. Parts of it are right in downtown Marietta. Perfectly suited for bicycles, joggers and walkers. Can be heavily traveled depending on the time of day.

Good trail. Paved. Nice view of the river. Be sure to walk across the walking bridge to visit The Train Station antique store.

Running

Is this referring to the River Walk? It's a paved path that starts at the fairgrounds and it's about 2 miles to the Muskingum/Ohio merge. then you can head east for a couple more miles. But this is not a loop and it's all paved, virtually no elevation change. I always get irritated going through the downtown part because I inevitably have to run through at least one cloud of cigarette smoke.

First to Review

I run this trial often, and the map of this trail is off plus it's not a loop. And according to the mile markers on the trail the miles they have are off too.. It's a paved trial very easy and wheel chair assessable
