a nice stroll

Good clear path, good for a stroll in the park.

nice for a little five minute walk or a spot to take your dogs. Not really a hike.

Cute little trail. May use for running the dog.

There is some truth to the vagrancy in the park and on the trail. They're harmless, and they'll leave you alone. Law enforcement is down here fairly often to watch them. Saying that, I won't park my car at Bowman Park. I live a few miles from downtown Albany and I'll make a day of walking to Davis Clark Path and down through this trail to enjoy the water. The views, the quiet in a noisy town, it's worth it. An easy trek to get 5-6 miles each way if the waters are normal or low height and you start at Monteith.

Perfect quiet trail, I'll walk it twice on a nice day to get 5 miles. You can walk over from town, I do quite often on a hot day as it's very shaded and right next to the river. A moderately used trail especially by local runners and walkers (I run into people I know fairly often) so it doesn't have the stigma it used to of car break ins and drug users. If you're in Downtown Albany and want to walk over to get away for a bit, it's ideal.

Nice place to walk.

It was a nice walk, not too hard and didn't see a lot of people there.

There was some really high water so most of the trail was several inches under. Doesn't take much I guess since it's right next to the river. Nice area though.
