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 one of the great strolls with water, trees and even a bit of wilderness right in town. I highly recommend spending some time walking through this cool, shady place.

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
