Mountain bikingGreat!Off trail

Nice paced out and back trail. Couple of cool bridges to take in some nice views. Well maintained heavier on the traffic but still nice for a quick ride. Also a short off trail dirt path about a mile in takes you right along the river.

HikingGreat!

Perfect venue after yesterday’s hard climb; looking for some speed work and this paved bike path was great, especially after raining all night and throughout the 2 hour workout. Marked ever quarter mile, tree canopy the whole way. Very courteous hikers, joggers, track team runners, and bikers along with our doggies. Extremely well maintained, cut, picked up. Even clean port-a-potties at the start and midpoint. Excellent pavement and new boards on the RR bridge to the island

Lots of shade. We started at the LOVE sign and went until the Amherst side. A good few miles when you go there and back.

Beautiful and well maintained trail. The bridge is open. The trail is flat and paved so it's perfect for bikers or even roller skaters like me! Highly recommend this calm beautiful trail.

Bridge is open... now if the city will repair the rest of the bridges on the blackwater creek trail. 11k steps under 2 hours. It’s paved, so it’s a good walk.

went out here a few months ago... The trail is paved and probably a better running or biking trail for those close by.

This was a nice hike that’s well traveled by runners, bikers, and walkers. The trail starts from right near the free Percival‘s Island and Riverwalk parking lot. It’s a flat, paved trail the entire way. It’s a very pretty, peaceful hike and I would definitely do it again.
