Roy Orr Trail Reviews

Casual Riding/Jogging Trail

s

The "trail" is broken into 3 segments. The 1st segment of the trail begins in a housing community so parking is strange. When one segment of the trail ends, you have to cross a mildly busy street and go around the corner to get to the next segment. Not much to look at, but the middle section of the trail goes right behind the library, and shortly after passing the library there is a good-sized playground; great if you've brought children along.

I run/bike this path often, it is never congested with people; so again, great for little ones that haven't quite mastered bike riding. Plenty of un-populated path for them to swerve and wobble.

Bottom line: if you're looking for a scenic trail to travel on with a spouse, look elsewhere. This is not a trail for avid bikers looking for a workout either, it's relatively short and you have to stop multiple times to cross the street to get to the next segment of trail. This is a short trail, safe for children (has 1 or 2 hills they'll probably have to walk) with playgrounds and eateries nearby.
