Highly recommend this trail to anyone in the area looking for a peaceful hike. Slightly overgrown in some areas but overall a very nice trail. Lots of shade to keep cool. Many fishing outlets leading to creek. Beautiful scenery. I took my dog and he had a blast. Quiet & not heavily trafficked. The “Volant Shops” were so quaint & cute to check out afterwards. We will definitely be back.

Like others have said, bring bug spray!! Trail was wet in places and once it went by the river has pretty views. The trail is not marked and forks at a certain point. We took the left fork and the trail ended after the river turned a corner so I think the right fork may be the way to the 4 mile hike.

Easy hike for any skill level. Went with my kids. Nice views of the lake. However, you definitely want to bring old shoes and bug spray! The trail was very muddy in a lot of places and the mosquitos were awful farther down the trail. Next time I’ll go better prepared.

Park by the railroad car shops in Volant, as far back as you can go to find the trailhead. The trail is an old railroad track, and covered with gravel in most sections. The trail was relatively flat with a few bends. The land on the non-river side of the trail was posted throughout, but the riverside land was available to explore and fish. There were plenty of great views of the water, I will definitely be hiking this trail again.

A very flat trail with nice views along the Neshannok Creek. Saw a bit of wildlife and some wildflowers were starting to bloom. A nice place to go for a leisurely stroll.
