trail was beautiful by the river and not too many people. but the noise pollution...all you could hear was cars, boats or airplanes.

Trails are sometime narrow, but there is a nice stream that runs along some of the trails- many off shoots and little nooks. Sat around 30th St N and had lunch.

Great hike, close to home! Waterfall at Windy Run was pretty cool!

Surprisingly woodsy and quiet for a trail so close to the city. Love this one!

Parts were beautiful. Terrain is not boring. Lots of intermittent litter.
