  • Very nice area with 4 mile paved fairly flat walkway with beautiful fragrant trees & flowers. Clean portable toilet stalls at beginning of the walk near ample parking area. Rolling river canal on one side & smaller river on the other. Several benches to sit on & a few steep hilly places to fish. We saw & heard many birds & also saw a beaver, ducks with ducklings, geese with goslings & two different heron. Amazing that it was hand dug so many years ago. It was a wonderful hike with other friendly hikers & bicyclists along the way. Wheelchair & stroller access. Great place.
  • Walked the whole 4 miles down and back. I really enjoyed this place. Bring water. Lots of things to see and just enjoy the quiet.
