Well went the wrong way from channahon towards Joliet but kinda of glad I did. Only saw a few people and saw a ton of wildlife. Egrets, Herons, frogs, rabbits, squirrels and a baby snake. A bit muddy in spots and I did lose control once. No road crossings just a few old railways. Total distance was 18.8 miles. Flat as can be and it follows the canal the whole way so I just enjoyed the beautiful nature and wildflowers as I peddled. Mostly shaded. Bring water/ snacks because there’s nothing around that i saw. Need to go back and ride part of the trail towards Ottawa.

My favorite trail. It's such a beautiful view along the river! So much to see and do from biking to hiking and kayaking. I am on it all the time, favorite spot

Beautiful area in the summer - so much green! You can hear the river throughout the entire hike and see the train tracks. The trailhead on this app is actually much earlier than the actual trail head. Just keep going until the gravel road finishes and you will see a regular parking lot with a bathroom. This area is not regularly trafficked so some parts are overgrown. It’s pretty isolated so be cautious. My family and I enjoyed it though!

We walked/ran from Overrocker Road entrance to Old Manchester Road entrance and back! It was a nice walk We usually only walk from Morgan Lake to the walkway and back so this was a nice change of pace.

Great trail and super close to downtown.

Look— I’m sure the trail is great. And the road there is pretty. But my friend and I just spent 2 hours trudging through snow to get to the trail head because the road is impassible. It was psychological torture. Every three feet we fell waist deep in the snow. If you want to make the treck, you need snowshoes and a car that is able to handle off-roading conditions. Or, just wait until all the snow melts.

Great trail! You have to some dodging as it’s a pretty busy trail with families, bikers, and walkers/runners but awesome trail to get some exercise in

Good path, a bit wet after a downpour. Of course, that’s expected. Otherwise everything is blooming with Spring-like energy!

Nice smooth and level trail (not that many flat trails in Prescott) with great views of the dells and the lakes. Lots of people out on the trail. Plenty of benches for a rest. No parking fee on Wednesday (normally $3).

Easy and neat, but crowded in the mid-morning hours.

Lots of ticks on this trail, but good other than that.

It lead us into someone’s private property and then we had to walk along a main road on a sidewalk where there were a lot of cars passing. Never doing this trail again.

Great trail, especially for running and biking.

Hot and sunny, very little shade out here but it’s a great stretch of paved trail perfect for wheels and feet.

Very scenic trail especially during the fall. Trail is plenty wide to accommodate bikes and hikers. Saw all kinds of wildlife along the way, also plenty of areas to stop by the creek for a break. My opinion one of the best trails around.

This is an awesome, wide, flat trail, perfect for quick rides before or after work.
