“Running, walking, biking--take your pick”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013

These trails are just great. Since they were created from railroad tracks through Oak Hill, the grade is never too steep. I've seen foxes, raccoons, snakes (just the small garden variety) and plenty of cats. Unfortunately, there are also a few dogs whose owners do not keep them on leashes. As a runner, this is a particular problem and I usually try to make my presence known well before I reach them on the trail. That said, it's well worth the risk and most of the dogs are very friendly. If you're into botany, you'll also enjoy the various plants, trees, and blooms at various times during the year. These trails were a long time coming, but well worth the wait.
