Nice trail for walking and biking and even great back drops for photo sessions! Can go as far or as long as you wish. Great old bridge too!

Bike, walk or run this trail; you won't be disappointed; I've done it countless times! The trail is hard packed and I've ridden it with both a hybrid and a recumbent bike. I've XC skied it as well when snow conditions were right (especially scenic)....More
