HikingGreat!

Excellent walking trail. Many opportunities for nature photos and selfies strolling the trail. We started the trail at the downtown entry point and hiked to Getzendaner Park and back to downtown. It was a 4 mile round trip.

Mountain bikingMuddy

the trail was very chill. had a handful of semi steep drops. 3 or 4 easy to intermediate man made jumps. all in all it was a very fun trail. paved the whole way, but had dirt trail next to pavement almost the entire way. couple of bridges to cross and one that road across the creek. since spots deep into the trail were closed by there were trails that went around it. it only got muddy around the parts that were flooded. %90 of the trails are in good condition still.

Good balance of casual sidewalk and dirt trails. Side loops can get you to 10 mile on dirt. Family friendly.

Mountain bikingBridge outGreat!

It’s very peaceful and the trail is fun to hike, there are people who walk their dogs but their always leashed. The wildlife there are fun to watch, especially the squirrels. Plus, biking though the trails is the best, the hills and turns are fun to go through, one of the bridges was out but i didn’t mind it, it was a bit sketchy anyways. There is a trail that runs along side the concrete trail, the jumps on it are fun. 10/10 recommend for mountain biking fans.

I don’t know why I expected this to be mostly wooded unpaved trail but I did. There is an unpaved section which is great and is a bit over a mile long. There are some surprisingly trickier parts to hike or jog and features a couple of exposed roots. All that said the paved part of the trail was also enjoyable and very suitable for a casual stroll, jogging, or biking. The town should be very proud of this gem.

Great trail very safe. This is really a family friendly concrete trail. Bring your pet, must be on a leash. Lots of trees and nice flat walking makes for a great workout. There are other off trails to ride your bike or walk. There is a deep creek that travels in and out.

This isn’t the bike trail I found out there’s a trail through the woods and a paved bike trail. Two different trails. All in all a great work out, cool temperatures today about 70°. Feels good to get moving. This is my second time on this trail.

super easy trail. a few drop off small cliffs. I wondered with two young kids and they handled themselves just fine. definitely something to be mindful of throughout though.

More of a walking trail than a hiking trail. Very flat and starts off in a relatively urban area but as you get out of the city it's more country. An interesting abandoned railroad bridge and some other historical bridges of interest.

Overall, pretty well marked. I lost the trail headed northwest, but the rest was great. Next time I’ll start southeast at the paved bike trail.

Just took my 4 year old for a short little walk to test his endurance. He did great on our little hike and was excited to get back and play on the playground. The trail is wide and paved. Great for bikes, strollers, running, walking, etc.
