Park at the northwest corner of Cass and Clinton streets or along the trail at Market Place. You can also park at Victory Park off Veterans Way.

Albion River Trail Reviews

Pleasant but only 3 stars because cuts through downtown where you are supposed to walk your bike or ride the streets

s

Best access to this short trail is from Victory Park. The new hilly section up southeast from the park to the cemetery and through this park is the most shaded and scenic. The western portion is very peaceful but somewhat hard to find unless you follow the signs from downtown which has been a real mess due to repeated repaving of main street requiring M 99 detour. The trail is paved and in fairly good condition except through the cemetery (gravel) but easily manageable on a mountain bike. YOU CAN CONNECT TO THE FALLING WATERS TRAIL IN CONCORD VIA ALBION RD, WHICH HAS DECENT PAVED SHOULDER FOR PART OF THE WAY AND DOES NOT HAVE VERY HEAVY TRAFFIC.

Short and pretty goes through a park and downtown runs alongside River.

s

Pros:
The section of the trail that goes through the park is beautiful with a waterfall bridge and gorgeous scenery. There's a nice railroad bridge on the second part of the trail as well.

Conns:
Unfortunately the sidewalk portion is a little confusing and cross a few busy roads. The two halves of the trail are divided by the sidewalk Section that runs through downtown.
