We only walked with our dogs a short distance (about one mile) on this nicely paved trail. Would be a good place to bike ride much longer distances.

The bike trail is a great place to get some peace and serenity as well as exercise. Bring plenty of water and get ready to push yourself to your personal limits!!

I have biked on here multiple times and each time, I have enjoyed myself. There are always other people either biking, running, or walking on it. It is very relaxing and I definitely recommend everyone to go on the trail.

Love to ride bikes with my family on the trail. We usually ride from home to Riverwalk then to Enos Lane or Derrell's mini storage. Smooth riding most of the way.

Nice paved trail. Goes all the length of the river. Some areas are better than others, depending on what neighborhood you are in.

Though the river is dry, it is a great ride. Popular for cyclists, walkers, and runners. You can get in a lot of good mileage and the pavement is in pretty good condidtion.
