I'm pretty shocked by how highly this trail is rated. Pros: The trail itself is well maintained, and the wild life in the water was fun to watch. We spotted at least 8 turtles. Cons: The trailhead was not marked and hard to find. It shares a parking area with an electrical maintenance area, so we weren't sure if we were in the right place. It's in the middle of an urban area, so once you get on the trail you can still see run down industrial businesses and freight trains. There was constant noise from the highway that runs along it. The trail didn't offer many view's. We ended up picking over 20 tics off our dog, even though halfway through we stopped letting her near the grass. I think it may be a nice get away for someone local to that area, but I personally will not be returning.

I had high hopes for this trail...started in BRISTOL by the water front and the first mile or so winding through the quaint town were wonderful. When we hit the small lake and went under the rail line the trail went down hill with litter and muddy trail (passable). We saw a tent city in the woods about a half mile past the rail with some questionable folks leaving. The other challenge was once we got to the TP bridge you will need to cross four lanes of highway to a poorly marked opening in the guardrail. In any event I hope the trail cleans up a bit over the next leg or so.

The coordinates don't take you to the path but to an off ramp of the highway
