An easy scenic loop trail along the river. Great for kids or people new to biking, this trail has very little elevation change and no steep grades but offers great views and pleasant slow speed biking. The trail is used mostly for hiking and can get busy; there are a few blind corners, so it is not great for riding fast on. However, as an easy introduction to mountain biking it is a nice short loop.

Access Info

Can be picked up at many of the road crossings, but the best easy parking is at the train station.
