It is a vehicle service road which is primarily used by bikers, runners and other related activities. This is what I would consider a great running location due to the lack of obstacles and that it is primarily unpaved. For hiking you are not really in a forest, and not really a trail. If you are out for a light walk it is probably nice but someone looking to get a hike in I consider it very boring. There are other trails which I consider better hiking in the area. Pendleton King Park Trail by Tammy Meade (98) 11 days ago 1 Completed 1 Reviews I run this park with my dog a couple times a week. It's not exactly a long or challenging trail, but it's a nice little surprise for being in the middle of the city. Augusta Canal Trail by Janina Moorehead (404) 7 months ago 4 Completed 3 Reviews Such a well kept trail! Very nice, wide paths great for biking and walking or running. Peaceful, uncrowded atmosphere. Come here after it rains to spot many different kinds of mushrooms all along the trail~! We found a calvatia cyathiformis that we got to take home, have ID'd by a mycologist online, and then fry up with some butter and garlic. Mmmm. :) The trail runs along the side of the river, and you can even rent single person canoes to go boating in. Also, enjoy all of the snazzy looking rich-people houses as you find your way to the entrance. xD Augusta Canal Trail by Mikel Manitius (6443) about 2 years ago 165 Completed 44 Reviews A fantastic wide walking or bike riding path along the river. Quiet, great views of the river. Loved it! Reed Creek Park by Mark Daughtry (91) over 2 years ago 6 Completed 2 Reviews This is not a trail. Just a boardwalk for bird watching. Pendleton King Park Trail by Jim Blount (126) over 2 years ago 1 Completed 1 Reviews If you like short walks that make you feel as though you are hundreds of miles away from urban life while being only blocks away, then this is the trail for you. Varied topography, vegetation and trail surface.

Augusta Canal National Heritage Area Trail by Amberly Edwards (76) about 3 years ago 1 Completed 1 Reviews Amazing run!! Ran this yesterday. Augusta Canal National Heritage Area Trail by Zurijanne Kelley (101) over 4 years ago 0 Completed 1 Reviews While it isn't the most exciting of trails I did enjoy walking this particularly for the natural factor. It's a well kept and wide trail frequently painted with mothers pushing kids, runners and a plethora of man's best friends. I haven't walked the trail in it's entirety...yet. It is complete with the occasional Port-a-potty for those who aren't comfortable with utilizing the woods and it is laced with points of interest throughout the trail. I like that it is bordered on the sides by the river and the canal. Makes for some great pictures and variety of wildlife. The only way to increase the level of difficulty is if you were to attempt to do the whole trail in a day. The entire trail is about 11 miles long so to go in and back out may take 7-8 hours if you're straight walking. If you're like me and enjoy stopping to take pics, write or simply enjoy being outside it'll take longer.
