Lovely, well maintained walking/biking path. The boardwalk over the water allows you to catch glimpses of water fowl. Looking forward to going back in the Fall when the leaves are changing. I'm sure it will be spectacular!

My wife and I spent an hour or two walking the trails through the woods and on the wooden boardwalk over the river. Beautiful scenery and very calm and serene. Parking was not a problem - lots of spots.

We have enjoyed the walk many times in all 4seasons. The boardwalk section is great for families. It is picturesque and peaceful especially in the winter as you can watch the ice flows. The Autumn is spectacular with the colors reflecting off the water.

Every time we go there is something different. One day there will be a swarm of turtles, another fish jumping, another herons fishing, and another a cormorant diving for fish and being dive bombed by gulls every time he comes up with a mouthful. There...More
