Days River nature trail has several options whether you want to go a short distance or a long distance. It is a beautiful trail to hike, run, bike, walk, ski, or snowshoe. Very peaceful with some great scenery.

Very nice trail system for any time of year. You can walk it in the summer and snowshoe or cross country ski in the winter.

These trails are beautiful in the summer for walking and in the winter for skiing! We snowshoe next to the trail and love it in the winter! The views of the river are beautiful.

They have great hiking trails. I only visited there the once, but I spent the better part of an afternoon hiking with my friends without doubling back across our own trail. They also have some rest areas scattered about with picnic tables and firepits.

We live 2 miles away from the trail and use it quite often for hiking and snow shoeing. It's a beautiful trail and offers several options for short or long excursions.
