Trail is not one to get going fast. There are dozens of road crossings with stop signs for the trail traffic. Also, many of the walkers will walk strollers 2 abreast with no concern for approaching traffic. Even bikers will take up the whole trail and not clear until you call, "on your left. "

This is by far the most beautiful bike trail I have explored. The views are outstanding. My favorite so far!

The scenery from the trailhead in Bristol is amazing. A flat trail that winds through marshes, parks, and old homes.

We've biked it, we've hiked it. It takes somewhat longer than 1.5 hrs to hoof it on this path, but it's a great dayhike if you're in the mood for faster-paced, more civilized walk. There are plenty of attractions and distractions to enjoy along the way, including several opportunities for snacks and ice cream! When my grandson and I are "in training" for an upcoming AT section hike, daily treks of 3+ miles on this path between our respective homes are part of our schedule.

Enjoyed this with my family last year. In a word - Exceptional! Scenic, well maintained, and offers a lot to do along the way. A must do for any level of biker - especially families.

Took the wife and kids, along with the dog on his own trailer. Very safe, and easy bike trail for the whole family. Not much shade, so bring plenty of water, and keep an eye on the dog.
