This path is comprised of gravel and pavement. It can be accessed at many points along the route and is great for the whole family. Users have reported as of August 2020, if you want to bike Channahon to Ottawa, due to previous flood damage there is a disconnect in Morris and you will need to reconnect with the trail in Gebhardt Woods. Ride downtown Morris to Jefferson and take a left. Accessibility: The trail surface is either pavement or gravel and typically at least six feet wide. The grade is gentle (all estimated 3% or less).Show more
