A nice easy ride for the mountain bikers and as it was a railroad route it is is fairly flat with only gentle grades along the way. Suitable for kids and those only average fitness. Some very scenic spots and resident wildlife.

We enjoyed a short hike on this marvelous rail to trail. There was abundant wildlife, scenery and sites to enjoy. The history is also marked as well as many places to stop, sit on a bench and just relax in the natural beauty.

Would not ride this trail on a road bike, there are quite a few sections where the trail is loose/course gravel and sections that unless it's the middle of summer would be quite muddy.
