I walk this trail frequently with my dogs and/or my grandchild. It is wide, clean, and busy on a sunny day. There are walkers, bikers, skaters, and skate boarders of all ages. You will enjoy it!

Happened to walk the Clipper City Rail Trail a couple of times and always find that it is extremely enjoyable. I park on Low Street near the skating rink and have an enjoyable walk.
