First, it's hard to find. Trip advisor gets you within a mile but not closer than that. Second, it's -- what? -- really, really short. I think 1/3 of a mile. It's pretty, yeah, but not worth the effort, in my opinion.

Days River nature trail has several options whether you want to go a short distance or a long distance. It is a beautiful trail to hike, run, bike, walk, ski, or snowshoe. Very peaceful with some great scenery.

These trails are beautiful in the summer for walking and in the winter for skiing! We snowshoe next to the trail and love it in the winter! The views of the river are beautiful.
