Trail DistanceSix miles.
Three sections of the trail are completely ADA-compliant. The section between Ferry Street and Water Street, the short section in Riverside Park, and the route within the Laurel Grove Cemetery are all blacktopped, level and wide enough for a wheelchair.
The rest of the trail is located on sidewalks, packed dirt paths and roadways with all of the various challenges that one might encounter - uneven sidewalks, no curb cuts and steep inclines. There are ADA-compliant parking spaces at the entrance to the West End Beach, Lumber Street and River Road and at the western entrance to Laurel Grove Cemetery.
There is a handicapped-accessible bathroom at the West End Beach Park which is open when the park is open.
