Decent trail. Not a complete loop. More like 2 looks mixed in 1. The first part was about 1.5, the second part about 3 miles. All in all, did about 4.5 miles. First 1.5 miles with 60#, last 3 miles with 40#.

we planned on doing both loops, but bailed on the second loop when the kids got tired. we did one giant loop and it was very nice. we came a few days after a giant rainfall so there was mud, but it wasn't so bad. just wear old sneakers so you don't care if coming after a rainfall.

Good walk, pretty busy though. Second loop is a bit more hilly, the first loop is fairly flat.

Awesome long walk along the river! The trail is wide and straightforward, and a bit muddy at points. There's a 1/2 mile or so where you can see the main road, but it's fairly quiet. We saw a tiny liittle snake man on our way back. We named him Fred the Gloriousss

For a moderate rated trail, it is excellent. Lots of good hills and valleys. Walked with my 4 yrs & 6 yrs old kids and they loved it. Plenty of things to explore and discuss.

February 1st - great trail for running/ easy hiking. Muddy in only a few spots, but it was easy to navigate. I went early (7am) and there weren’t too many folks on the trail. You can still hear the sounds of the city, but it’s a wonderfully quiet little bit of the city.

Hiked after a heavy rain. Swampy part at the start filled with birds (piliated woodpecker!).

Lots of dogs off leash. Be prepared for that and make sure yours can handle that

Gorgeous, varied route provided by On Foot Holidays! Not all this long because we visited a castle.
