Trail shared by Kevin Rumsey

A relaxing and well-used trail that keeps one on their toes.

Features Birding · Fall Colors · River/Creek · Views · Wildlife

Dawn to dusk. Some parts are closed to cyclists.

Runner Notes

Look ahead to blind turns for kids on bicycles, and nature lovers taking pictures of wildlife. You may also encounter non-poisonous snakes.

Description

This trail keeps you on your toes, as you navigate paved, gravel, and singletrack sections. Keep an eye several paces ahead of you for kids on bikes, and families with small children, and nature lovers. It is best to run it during the week, and early morning hours on weekends to avoid some of the crowds.

Flora & Fauna

Plenty of trees, cover, and small bushes along the Eno River.
