Hiked the low side first. sets up a majority of the climbing right past the halfway mark. super winter views along and above the river. great quick hike.
A great evening or morning hike. it is grown up in places as of 06/27/16 but all and all a good little hike.
Perfect in early spring when the wildflowers blanket the forest floor. Can be a bit overgrown in late spring/early summer.
easy and nice views. done this one several times. nice, quick and easy trail!
Had a wonderful hike on this trail. It had great views and provided plenty of exercise if that's what you want. It is a very narrow trail with embedded rocks in areas and some very steep drop-offs. Not for the faint of heart. No way could or would one want to take a stroller. I think the gentleman was referring to the Songbird Trail on the other side of the river. This is definitely not a greenway. One of the more challenging trails I have hiked. The wildflowers were fantastic.
I had a very nice hike on a very warm December day. The trail is in good shape, and not very difficult. There were good views of the river and the dam with all of the leaves off of the trees.
Great but narrow in spots. Needs some trimming done. Nice views.
