Many well marked parking areas with access to the trail. Plenty of wildlife. Nice paved path. Wish the weather had co-operated, only got to walk about 1/3 of it in two attempts.

This is a paved old rail trail about 11 miles long passing through trees and by lakes. It is good for walking and biking and can be picked up in many different spots starting at the Visitor Center in Adams. Recently the trail has been...More
