Really nice ride. We only had mountain bikes with us but passed several people on road bikes. A great trip for history buffs.

19.5 miles with 10 trailheads providing access. It is a great way to see the park and get as much exercise as you want. We really enjoyed exploring the trail at the Beaver Marsh/Boardwalk, Peninsula and Boston Visitor Center areas. Luckily our visit coincided with the harvest moon and we were also able to participate in a very popular three mile ranger-led full moon hike on the Towpath north from Boston...very memorable!

Great trail for biking, walking and running. The trail follows the CVNP train and has many places you can stop along side of the trail such as, the beaver marsh, Szalays farm market, Boston mills visitor center and several other locations. It's one of the greatest assets the CVNP has to offer!
