Views of the river
A quick walk
Easy – all flat. .5 mile.
Getting to the Trail
Turn off Rt. 10 in West Lebanon onto E. Wilder Road. There’s a sign that says industrial park. I’ve passed it a couple times and had to turn around, so it comes up quick. You’ll be on a residental street that has some turn offs like a fork: one to the left to the trail, one in the middle goes to someone’s house, and one veers right towards the Quail Hollow Senior Living Community. Stay to the left. This road continues along the river and you’ll drive by more houses and a boat launch. Keep going. The parking area is a bit past the E. Wilder Professional Park, a brown building at the end of the road on your left.
You’ll see a sign and dirt circular area to park.
On the Trail
The trail is an easy loop which you can see on this map here. It starts as a lovely woodsy walk.
The the path veers right and starts to give you hints of the river.
Soon you’ll come to a fork in the road and this is just the start of the loop. You can either way it’ll bring you back to the same main path you started on.
So you know you won’t get lost, the trail is just like a vintage loop handled screw driver.
As you walk along you get better and better views until you come to the featured image (you can see Route 10 and some cars going by).
Shortly after it turns right and loops back around.
You’ll see a little indictator on a tree.
The trails are blazed blue and white on the trees too, so that will help you find your way, though it is an easy walk to navigate.
Soon you’ll find yourself back where you started. I was surprised at how quick the walk was, but such a lovely and peaceful walk. You can even enjoy a snack at the picnic table when you’re done behind the sign.
Definitely looking forward to going back. I especially liked the river views from the road too.
So if you want a leisurely stroll through the woods with some beautiful views, check out Cole Park in West Lebanon.
