Walking the dogs

We only walked with our dogs a short distance (about one mile) on this nicely paved trail. Would be a good place to bike ride much longer distances.

The bike trail is a great place to get some peace and serenity as well as exercise. Bring plenty of water and get ready to push yourself to your personal limits!!

I have biked on here multiple times and each time, I have enjoyed myself. There are always other people either biking, running, or walking on it. It is very relaxing and I definitely recommend everyone to go on the trail.

Love to ride bikes with my family on the trail. We usually ride from home to Riverwalk then to Enos Lane or Derrell's mini storage. Smooth riding most of the way.

Nice paved trail. Goes all the length of the river. Some areas are better than others, depending on what neighborhood you are in.

Watch Out! don't get hit by the arrogant cyclist who abound on the path. Otherwise, its decent. Why does the trail skip around the part of the river which actually has water? Answer - because the few who have built houses next to the river have extended their fence line to the river past their property line where the trail... More

Though the river is dry, it is a great ride. Popular for cyclists, walkers, and runners. You can get in a lot of good mileage and the pavement is in pretty good condidtion.

Rode the parkway on my road bike a few times and was a great way to exercise and not have to work about cars. Once out of town it is very peaceful as well
