Runner Notes

This can be a busy trail, please make sure that you are announcing your arrival in some way as you come up on other people enjoying the trail.

Description

This trail is an extension of the trails out of Farewell Bend and Riverbend Parks. The trail is well marked with many interpretive points along the trail. You may see fly fishermen, river floaters, and whitewater kayakers in the water, while along the banks runners, bikers, and of course dogs can be seen going for walks. Bikes are only allowed on the east side of the River Trail. This is a great trail to enjoy the river close to town!

Peaceful and relaxing trail. Right now it's a one-way loop which means you encounter even less people. 3.5mi — 0h 38m
