Great Running/Walking Experience

If you are looking to get out and experience nature via walk, jog, or bike this is for you. I would caution you not to do it alone. It is very remote.

What a great respite just behind the Gadsden Mall! Calm, serene and beautiful landscape in this walking park just off a major thoughfare.

This is a great place to visit everyday and do your walking miles. Very well kept, wooded and a lake very close by. Many Canada Geese and now lots of babies. Love this place.

Nice enough trail that has a long boardwalk that crosses the Coosa to an island and a gravel section that connects to the Gadsden Mall. Good parking on both ends. Good place for bird viewing.

Short trail that encircles a pond like area. The trail begins behind the Gadsden mall and starts as a packed gravel trail that leads to a long boardwalk for the crossing over water. At the end of the boardwalk the trail becomes a dirt foot path in a wooded island like area. The walk out and back is about 3... More

It is easy to track how far you have walked/run, etc. You can easy do a 1/2 mile, full miles, two miles and three miles. You can also take your dog with you. Path is fairly level.

It was a pleasure to see the quite still waters, and hear the crickets and the birds. You have 1 hour on your hands and some walking shoes then that's your place...

This trail was close to our campground and I rode there by bike and explored the paths. I loved the boardwalks over the water and saw much of the wildlife mentioned in previous reviews. I am currently injured and can't run, but am looking forward to returning when I can. I was alone and felt very safe. There were several... More

This is a quiet peaceful place to relax and gather your thoughts. You can walk the trails or just sit and look at the water. When you get hungry, the mall is right there. Wonderful!!
