This is a great trail for the family. Right next to the rest area, several rest area facilities in the park and a great place to get out and stretch your legs. A nice easy walk through the woods, with several different options. Stick with the paved trail or go further south and take some of the dirt trails back through the Cottonwoods. They have Buffalo and Elk viewing areas and wildlife throughout the trail along the river. Moose really like this area too, so just keep an eye open while enjoying the sites. The trail is great for biking and I heard the are looking at extending some of the Mountain Bike Trails as well. This area also has a place to drop a kayak in the river and take in some of the rapids that have been placed along the way. Overall this area has a lot to offer in such a small area.
