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