This trail was a fun meandering walk along the river. It's a great family trail without many technical or steep spots. My two-year old loved it! There are many spots to stop and sit or wade in the river. If you're looking for a real challenge to get your heart pumping, you won't find it here. But this does looks like it'd be a great trail to run!
