Great view. Lots of manholes though. Great for kids and dogs too. More than half of the trail was Creek view. loved the nice walk.

Enjoy this natural trail along a very scenic waterway, especially in the springtime. Along the creek pathway makes for a more interesting and challenging ride. Make sure it hasn't recently rained when you go!

Mostly loamy with some hard pack sections and some root and rock segments. A winding fisherman’s path off the main trail along the stream bank makes for a more interesting run. Minimal elevation with a couple of short, punchy climbs, there’s a small paved segment near Rapps Damn Road covered bridge. For a bonus loop travel southeast on Rapps Damn for .2 miles past National Guard complex to a network of unmarked trails.

Maybe avoid in deep summer. I bet it's lovely October-April. If you go in summer like us, bring bug spray. Flat wide trail next to river. The river is beautiful and there's a really nice bridge.

Pretty trail next to French Creek. Good birding area coupled with several historic structures. Good for all skill levels.
