Description

The natural surface trail is open to runners, hikers and bikers, but not equestrians. South of River Road, the trail is open to foot travel only. The most challenging part of the trail is safely crossing River Road at the southern portion of the Stream Valley Park. In order to cross at a signalized intersection trail users must leave the park system and make their way along the northern side of River Road and a short distance down Seven Locks Road.


Parts of the trail remain wet and muddy even after a rain. Jump over or go straight through the mud, as going around the edge of the trail promotes erosion and exacerbates the problem.
