We walked on the Newbern side of this trail today it was very clean, quiet and peaceful. All while being shaded the whole time.
Great place for families!
Very nice, clean and wide path. Perfect for a leisurely afternoon ride. Very few hills and inclines are minimal.
I had high hopes for this one, because I thought we he mounds, music history and cemeteries would be interesting. It looks like the city made an effort at one time to invest in their greenways and parks, but the portion we rode was unkempt and unclear. Lots of construction and little revitalization. Maybe down the road they will get it all together and it will be a nice ride.
This trail is nearly level compared to other trails that are reviewed. The Northern end at The Water Park is very well maintained and a great place for kids, birthday parties, and community functions. The Southern End is to be linked soon but at present that is a promise.
The Southern End extends from the Spring Street Bridge north a bit but certainly goes South from there to the Ocmulgee National Park. This lower part is new to me and truly a wonderful ride, hike, run or walk. It parallels the River and the Interstate 16 with many bridges over creeks and marshes. It is highly recommended.
From the Boat Ramp at the Spring Street Bride to the Great Temple Mound is about 3 miles. Many prefer to park at the Great Temple Mound and walk North as security is a bit better. But, don't get locked-in!
This is a great trail that will be even better once completed into Mansfield.
