This is a really nice trail for anyone to walk or peddle. It’s virtually flat with a solid base from the former railroad tracks. There are several little spur legs that you can venture down to the lake and at the south end it will connect to another trail heading west to the Tuttle Campgrounds, (unofficially the Tuttle Trail). There are many spots for picture taking and seeing wildlife. You can also cross the road at the Spillway area and use the public facilities, get a drink/snack or feed the fish. This is the 1st Segment of the Spillway Trail. It is scheduled to get an expansion in 2020 heading further east approx. 6 miles.

The Spillway Trail is a very nice trail that is going to get a make out in 2020 and an expansion also.. You have several starting points on the current trail, but I prefer to start off Fries Rd. parking area and head north till you get to Stewart’s Bay on the left right before the trail would cross the road to the eventual new section which will travel behind Crooked Paddle Restaurant.... that gives you 2.4 miles, then turn around and head back.. There are numerous spur legs that shot down into the woods and to the lake, that you can take side adventures on. The trail is virtually flat, easy to walk, peddle, jog, run, or even push a big wheel stroller on, also good to walk pets on... Grass covered on the old rail road bed, but they plan to change that once the new section is added heading east. You can stop at the Spillway area and use the bathroom facilities or even see and feed the fish... You will enjoy the walk and the amazing places to take pics all along the trail... bugs can be an issue in the mid to late day, so take spray...
