A very short trail at only 5 miles but one of the best equipped and maintained that I have seen. Three porta potties, lots of benches, rain shelters, at least 4 trailheads, a covered bridge. Most of the trail is shaded with one section wide...More

This is a great trail for a quick hike or a longer run. Has some nice views and if you are into bird watching it's great for that as well.

Paved, flat, wooded. Much of it along French Creek. Well maintained, safe environment. Many walkers as well as bicycle riders.

We started at the Bean's parking area and rode as far as the Mercer Pike parking area. It was nice because we rode mostly in the shade and were able to stop for a rest if we wanted to.

Very nice trail. Mostly wooded. No steep inclines. Just be mindful, about 3 miles in from the trail head by home depot, you have to cross a couple roads. The trail is 5 miles long. Very easy biking.
