A very pleasant walking trail, fully paved, within feet of the river. Pocket parks and rest facilities in places, too. Watch rafters cavort, see trout feeding, but don't get so absorbed that you fail to notice bikers - who race past silently and without warning.

This trail along the river is just lovely. Walk or bike, run or just stroll, either way, throughly enjoyable and beautiful. Several bridges cross either side of the river and make for some very picturesque scenery.

trail behind Double Tree and Albertsons very littered and appears to be used by homeless as pillows are propped against building walls and clusters of litter near pillows. Really need to do litter control and ensure area is safe and clean
