Pretty river. Pretty busy trail, but was surprised by the minimal litter! Nice job, Oregon!!

This trail is perfect for hiking or trail running. My son and I tried it on our bikes which is not advisable. Bikes are only allowed on the first part of the trail. It would probably be a fun trail for mountain bikers, but it is very crowded with runners and hikers and is narrow. Definitely not a good family bike ride! We sure had a memorable adventure though! We'll be back to hike it on foot. It is beautiful!

Awesome easy-going trail. Can easily walk or run this trail with spots to cool off in the river.

Very petty. Right at the river's edge.

Very pretty! Easy walk! Great for family and friends visiting who want to see the beauty Bend has to offer, but can't do longer/harder hikes.
