This is a very pleasant trail for bikers and walkers. Easy peddling with only gradual inclines. The scenery is beautiful - local farms, old farm houses, streams and woods. Very cool (both temperature cool and emotional cool) where old railway cuts through rocks. Great family trail. People on trail extremely friendly. Reminded me of Sunday walks in Germany.
