Oak Leaf Trail Reviews & Ratings
Great little hiking trail along the river! Wonderful walk and views for a summer sunset. You might see some fishermen along the river. I passed some fathers and sons with their fishing gear during my hike. Really fun, the trail is nice an small and you can feel like you actually escape the city for a bit (if you ignore the sounds of the cars).
