The trail goes all the way to downtown and back. It's a fairly long trail with much of it near the river. It's a nice and pretty walk, great for couples or a family. Great for picnics too!

Ok walk along the river. The trail is not that long and the park is pretty small but it is pretty well maintained.

Had a nice time walking this River Walk. It was hard to find, but my boyfriend and I got some nice pictures. It was also really nice to see all the history connected with the town.

This is a perfect spot to get out and walk while enjoying the water. The area is not hard to walk and you can choose the length of path that you want.

The river walk has some nice spots, and some dirty / boring / uninteresting spots as well. The fisherman's loop, the area around the depot, and the area around the community center are the best spots. The old railroad trestle is nice to see as...More
