I am not very outdoorsy by nature. I don’t go camping. I don’t shop at R.E.I., and I wore running shoes and yoga pants on a hike yesterday.
This little guy also came along. I read on the website that pets are welcome, as long as they are leashed. I told Brokaw he was going to come with us to the park, and he started barking really loud, and jumping up and down. He doesn’t go to the park as much as he used to. (When I lived in Pittsburgh, I lived right down the street from a great park, and we went almost every week day.)
As far as accessibility goes, I’d give this trail a B. It’s not a paved trail, but I mean c’mon. Paved trails just aren’t as natural. If you were in a power chair, I think this trail would be absolutely no big deal. But the ground is soft in some areas (sandy) and it’s gravel, so I know Michael got a workout! He only got stuck a couple of times, though, and with just a little nudge from me, he was on his way again. There are two wheelchair accessible overlooks that have amazing views of the river! Those get an A!
