We walked along the River and it was so peaceful and beautiful. They have QR codes in places that will tell you about places along the path. The paths are well maintained and you can see wildflowers and wild life along the way.

Flat and paved, this 3+ mile loop follows the river. Lots of walkers, runners, and bicyclists share the amply wide path. Lots of other exercise and fitness options.
