Nice paved trail along the St. Lawrence River. Both ends have pet waste bins and bags available for use. Parking at both ends whether you want to start at Whalen Park or at the River Course at Louisville Landing. Kayak ramp at the Whalen Park side along with playground, tennis and basketball courts.
