Awesome old rail bed trail!
My boyfriend & I took our dog on this hike. It was so much fun. Make sure that you follow the signs because there are so many different trails intertwining throughout the hike. Using the map is ideal in a few places but mostly, just follow the signs. It was an amazing day hike, however; I’d recommend going earlier during the day because we got to the end of the trial & it was sunset. The most beautiful sunset view I’ve seen in a while. We walked back through the neighborhood because it was dark, that was also beautiful & very well lit. We will definitely be back.
I was disappointed in the trail. If you are going to hike this plan to come way after a rain. It was extremely muddy and therefore getting quite eroded. The biggest disappointment was the human impact as far as first trash and then once I made it to a beautiful deciduous forest with gorgeous beech trees, if these beautiful trees were within a few feet of the trail they were defaced. Come on people!
I live in the neighborhood so I go all the time. I especially love it when there are few people and most of what I hear are the birds. Most if it is shaded but there is also a walkway that leads to an open area where you can feel the warm sun as well. The only downside is that there are a number of people who don’t bother to clean up after there dog.
What I like about this trail is that it passes through a heavily wooded area passing over streams and rivers. Very scenic. Also i have never seen more than a few other people when I’ve been there. There are two easy road crossings. Unfortunately one of the bridges has no side rails and some of the boards are in need of repair so use caution when crossing. The trail is somewhat rocky but much improved o er what it used to be.
First time riding this trail. Nicely kept. Friendly people on trail.
I ride this weekly one of my favorite. Very well traveled clean lots of breweries to stop and get a cold one. I Take it to the end near Uptown then get on the side walk on Morehead take it to Mint St around BOA Stadium then hit Irwin Creek Trail makes for a nice 10 mile ride.
My husband and I love this trail
What a great trail to ride a bike on! Loved it and use it frequently!
This week I ran from the parking area near I-26 to Route 176 in Pomaria and returned to my starting point. This was 3 miles each way so I know it was a small portion of the overall trail. The trail feels secluded and peaceful once you get away from the interstate. I saw several deer and only one other user of the trail. After lots of rain this week the trail was well drained. As a previous reviewer mentioned, the surface is made of chunky rocks which is very bumpy for runners and cyclists. I rolled my ankle twice but fortunately no sprains. My biggest concern is that the trestle boards are in poor condition. I saw several that were broken through that could cause a pedestrian or cyclist to get hurt. I felt a couple boards crunch under me and I'm not a big person. One of the trestles I crossed used man-made boards and it seemed to be in the best condition. The next time they re-surface the trail I hope they use a finer aggregate which would make it more safer for everyone.
Great ride! The part through the park is under construction. Will definitely be back!
A nice ride through the city connecting several parks. Fairly flat with several turns and some great scenery. Only complaint is the northern part of the trail has a lot of street crossings and can be a little confusing to navigate back on the trail. Will definitely ride again though.
