Great trail. Actually was a smaller gauge railroad...a trolley...making passing other bikers a bit tight. But the trail is less traveled; a plus. Some canopy. Some open spaces. Some old rock walls. Saw a pair od bald eagles at the end of our 12 mile...More

It was a very nice trail. Trailhead was easy to find. Well maintained with half mile markers. Most of the trail was well shaded when we were there. Very flat, except for when meeting one or two of the roads.

The trail is a converted railroad bed covered with crushed limestone. Wide enough for two-way traffic. Dogs are welcome. No bathrooms or porta potties except for the Lawn playground and Twin Kiss entrance otherwise I would give a 5 star rating.
