  • Preserve Size: Not sure
  • Trail Mileage: ~.6 miles
  • Pets: yes
  • Difficulty: easy

This is a short trail that takes you to views over the Cathance River. To access the trail, park in the parking lot for Mailly Waterfront Park, near the downtown. Cross the road, and walk along the train tracks to find the path. You’ll come out on a pretty meadow, with two picnic tables. Tracks circle the small field, and there is a spur to a river overlook.

Directions: Take Route 24 into town. You’ll see a big parking lot and park on the right, after you’ve crossed the bridge if you’re coming from the south. The trail starts across the street from the lot, to the right of the building with a sandpile.
