Description

This trail is an easy hiking or as a bike trail for families!

A short stretch of the Galena River Trail is used to access several private property owners and is therefore shared with automobiles. Approximately 1/4 mile from the trailhead begins a 1/2 mile section of shared use trail. On this section, vehicles may be present on the trail. The rules of the road apply on the shared use section. Trail users should navigate on the left side of the trail (against traffic) and bicyclists should ride on the right side of the trail (with traffic). Though trail users have the right of way, always be alert, defensive, and cautious.
