We use the trail system daily. There are different areas to access the trail and each section is unique. My favorite place to access is at the Community Market on Craghead Street. Beautiful river views and wildlife.

We had our bikes on the back of the car. I didn't see any bike rentals around there. It is a great walk however; the path is well maintained and the scenery and history markers make it very worthwhile.
Where's the best place to park for this? Also... is there one section that is best? We have young children and could only pick a section to begin with.
