A fantastic wide walking or bike riding path along the river. Quiet, great views of the river. Loved it!

This is not a trail. Just a boardwalk for bird watching.

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.

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.
