“A short, wood chip trail that is a good introduction to escaping pavement.”
— Andy Cramb
Yes, kids will do great on this trail.
This is the only trail in Newton where you can escape pavement. Most of the trail surface is wood chips, except for the part along Main St which is a dirt path. It's also a favorite for runners and walkers, so use caution.
Overall, this is a fun, wooded trail where you can get away from traffic for a while. The trail follows the Sand Creek which eventually goes through downtown Newton. This is basically a flat trail with no challenging features, but it gives new riders a place to get out among the trees and build a love for the sport.
