We parked in Sibley Park to begin the trail - a very pretty start by the river. That changed quickly once we were out of the park! The path is wide enough and at 3:00 in the afternoon, very quiet - no bikers. That is the reason I gave it 2 stars - I kept wondering if we were actually on the bike trail. It's not scenic from a nature standpoint, it runs thru a very industrial part of town. You ride for the majority of the path right next to a 20' concrete wall on one side and a very steep bank of boulders down to the river below on the other. A couple of major hills down then up, which if you take advantage of the downward hill the up is not hard, but it's scary given the nature of the river bank, the concrete wall and any kids you might have in front of you! The Riverfront Park in town is lovely but beyond that the next "feature" is some kind of stinky treatment facility, then just around the bend is a firing range where a man with a rifle was sending ammo downrange...the path comes VERY close and while I'm sure it's safe, it seems to run parallel to the range, I mean, we could see the man's face behind the gun as he was shooting, we were not BEHIND him....a little unnerving, and very loud of course - this is where we turned around to head back. We will not be back to this trail.
