Parking available right next to the trail and then a good 20 min to the historic train wrecks which by now turned into graffiti art and are great to explore and climb on. A little suspension bridge to cross before getting there and some signs...More

This hike is almost perfect because nearly anyone can do it, it’s not too long, but has beautiful walks in the trees, a fun suspension bridge and a quirky graffiti filled train wreck at the end. Felt like it had something for everyone. Went with...More

The hike in is very easy along the river. Disable access path is also an option. Scenery was very nice also but unfortunately like all these places it was very busy.

It's a very easy hike, the trail has a hardened surface. Muddy conditions are possible once you get to the actual train cars. There is a wee bit of a grade in a couple of spots, but nothing strenuous. Can't speak to the... More

Bikes are allowed, but it is a narrow trail and you will be dodging a lot of pedestrians.
