“A very long greenway with many access points.”— Marty McFly
Family Friendly Short hike that is close to home and can get everyone into nature. It may be too much for some grandparents.
Terrain is hilly with many short climbs and descents. None are hard to manage. It is a good trail to check if you are in shape and practice your pacing for a backpacking trip. Camping is not allowed, however.
Most access points are a short ways from East Drive, Outer Drive, and West Outer Drive. Listed west to east, they include accesses at Endicott Lane, Englewood Lane, Delaware Avenue, Georgia Avenue, Orchard Lane, Key Springs Road, Wedgewood Road, North Walker Lane, Old Batley Road, Illinois Avenue, and Mississippi Avenue.
