Paul G. Boorman Trail Reviews

Longview’s connecting trails are hidden gems

Longview is listed to have three trails, Cargill, Guthrie and Boorman. This is true BUT all three connect seamlessly!! You can bike from one end to the other making for a 10 mile one way trip or 20 miles round trip! The trails are beautifully landscaped and cared for with benches and workout stations. Highly populated with beautiful cardinals and an occasional bunny rabbit. Green grass beautiful and always mowed length of Boorman trail and Guthrie Trail. Trail is wide concrete on these two. Cargill portion has many more hills, but is also beautiful, but asphalt surface. These trails are so shady and therefore beautiful in the

Great for Dog Walking

Great scenic trail for walking with the dogs. Large dog parks on the trail with fences.

Nature Walk Trail

This trail is very scenic and there is a lot of nature to take in! If you don’t mind snakes this is the perfect trail for you!
If you don’t bother the snakes they won’t bother you! Just watch your step!


This trail is excellent for families! Great path for walking, riding, or roller blading!


Love It!

The trail is not quite 3 miles, one way. It's perfect for biking, walking, running, rollerblading, etc. They have a bathroom at one of the trailheads (Fairmont St Trailhead). Its awesomely shaded in a lot of areas and it's got gorgeous scenery. You will see deer along the trail sometimes and lightning bugs right as the sun is going down. I rollerblade and bike ride on this trail everyday and LOVE it. It's awesome that Longview has this. There are also 2 dog parks, both right off the Loop Entrance.

Very nice

This trail very nice! Do friendly with dog parks, like it and will be back.

A Good Trail

We rode this trail from the Marshall Ave. trailhead north for about 2.5 miles. It goes through the woods and every now and again you come across a park or another trailhead. It's a nice trail that is easy to ride and has many things to look at along the way.

Best short trail

One of the best trails we have rode on. Trail is short and has one major road crossing.
