Beautiful place for a walk/run/bike. Super family friendly. Well Paved.

Very easy, great for strollers or kids new to outdoor walks. I wouldn't call it a 'hike'. The scenery is subpar, the mosquitos were out in hoards. Not a lot of flora or fawna but was not overcrowded with people.

A little boring at times as you stare ahead at a mile of straight flat pavement but the views on the sides of the trail are very nice, really like looking up at the high cliffs. Once you run out of pavement and cross a street the trail continues onto a gravel trail that follows a lake in a nature preservation area. I saw some turkeys on this part. If you enjoyed the first half the second half is more of the same, with more views of the water than the first half but suffers from the same long straight boringish sections.

All in all, the trail was well maintained and quite enjoyable. Traffic was light, I passed 2 or 3 people on my weekday walk. I'm not sure why but my walk was 14.8 miles which is a little longer than the 13.3 listed here

Nice flat and paved trail in the shade. A little over 3 miles from main trail head to the bridge. Not a difficult hike, but worth the trip.

I thought the views and the scenery were great! very calm and relaxing. But riding straight and flat was kind of boring.

It's a great place to go running or walking cause it's flat the view it's pretty and refreshing, the only bad thing there was a lot of trash along the river, specially on the gravel side

Fun run. Be sure to continue the trail on to Eagle Pass Trail. We will definitely run this one again. This trail is great to do if it has been raining. All asphalt and gravel.

Flat, wide, paved, rails-to-trails out/back that is perfect for cyclists and families. Bluffs on one side and river inlet views on the other. A cool train bridge about 3.25 miles in. A simple, safe trail to run on or take the kids biking.

Love this trail. Level of difficulty is easy, but it's distance that's the key here. A little over 13 miles long trail. Endurance is the word. Challenge yourself to finish the whole trail. Very scenic. One of my favorite summer hike destinations.

wonderful walk in the woods

We love this trail. Super easy. We have done the entire 14 miles ( all the way to the dam and back) leave early if you plan to do the whole thing.... super creepy if you don't make it back before dark, no lights along the trail.

Not a bad walk. Mostly paved road. This trail does lead to more trails for a longer hike.

This is a great BIKE trail. I believe it is from the Rails to Trails program. It's approximately 4 miles of paved trail. You can ride another 3 miles of gravel trail, which ends at a campground (with a real bathroom). Flat ride; not much incline. Mostly shaded. Not too crowded.

We stopped by the for a walk and weren't disappointed with the out and back trail. It is paved and mostly shaded with trees. The views aren't that interesting. One side is a hill with trees and sometimes you can see the river on the other side. There is a wood bridge that crosses a creek and you can walk down to look at the creek and a small dam. There is also a bathroom about 1/3 down the way from the entrance.

If you're looking for a flat, shaded trail, this is it. This is an asphalt trail which is approximately 8 miles out and back--nothing too exciting. Watch out for squirrels! This places has tons of squirrels, which means I won't be bringing my dog. There is a nice parking lot, but the lot is quite small.

Crowded but nice

I was thrilled with the scenery and how the path followed the water nearly the entire trail. I biked it all the way to the dam and camping area, which was about 8 miles one way. Easy ride since the path was either paved or gravel, with a very small part of it being off road. This was a pretty trail with lots of wildlife to see.

This there-and-back trail offers a little variety of scenery, but is mostly tree-lined and completely flat. There trail starts off bordering a marshland which disappears after the first mile or so. The first mile is also lined with signs identifying the different tree types, which makes for some interesting distractions. After that there are intermittent spots bordering farmland and nearby homes. The bridge crossing is impressive though and we saw some folks canoeing on the Cumberland the day we were out.

Decent trail. Parallels the river and crosses a really cool old railroad bridge. Only downside is most of it is on pavement so the walking is a little more high impact.
