I walked this trail on a beautiful early May day with the temperature in the low 70s. I started from the Clover Lane entrance. The first part of the trail was gravel but soon became a real nice paved trail. I walked to the first Kelso bridge and back and encountered 6 cyclist and 1 rabbit. Other than an occasional train it was very peaceful.

Great for kids on bikes. Nothing super exciting but a nice way to get exercise in town.

Good for a run or quick bike ride. Paved the entire way.
