Unless you're on a bike I wouldn't suggest taking this trail. I hiked it and dealt with bikes almost nonstop from both directions.
It was too early for all that but it was a nice ride. The history of these towpaths is fasinating.
A wonderful early morning ride. I love the bridges, train depot and other man made atractions mixed in with nature and history.
I agree with Mairah that the traffic noise takes away from the experience. Other than the traffic noise it was a beautiful ride.
It was a nice bike ride. I only gave it a 3 because of the traffic nearby.
I do enjoy this trail but some parts u hear lots of noisy traffic that's not so relaxing . Awesome trail for biking in the fall it's so beautiful I love to take my daughter on my bike
Great! Such a beautiful and fresh area:)
Very flat walk along the Towpath throughout but some nice scenery along the way. I tend to frequent the trails around the towpath more often as the path itself is usually very congested with bike traffic.
