Did this after work today to try to break in new hiking boots. Easy trail. Spooky in tunnels all alone, but cool.

Easy trail, unless you venture off course. Family friendly as you can walk, jog, bike on this trail. Tunnel is fantastic to walk thru!

Nice out and back rail trail, great walk with the kids and educational as well with the historic tunnel at the end and informational signs along the way. There's also a picnic table at the tunnel, we packed a picnic lunch while we were at it!
