Typical river's edge trail - jumbly, with off-camber turns and potholes that take time to dry after rain. It's not really technical but still difficult to get a flow going. If southbound, once you reach the slide area of the former Keillor Road, do not try to follow the river to link with the Fox Drive trail. Climb instead to a mid-level trail.
