Easy hike (or biking) with plenty of wildlife and nature on display. Walking alongside the river was a very calming experience hearing the running water and soaking in the peaceful ambiance.

The hike to the footbridge is beautiful and invigorating. One side of the river has some hills and the other is flat so there’s a nice variety. Popular bike trail too.

Beautiful setting that has a foot bridge across the river. The entire loop is in excess 5 miles, flat on the south side, some hills on the north side.
