For those looking for green respite from the city, Belle Island fits the bill. The views of the river rapids from the island are quite nice and you can get a good walk in if that's your aim. The footbridge to access the island from the north side is interesting but narrow and visitors - mostly kids and young people this afternoon - appear to have no concept of social distancing as they walk three across so that you have to brush past them as you walk in the opposite direction. Although the island is supposed to be a historical site, what little is there is dilapidated and the signage, where it exists is so old as to be difficult to read.

Love Belle Isle for a run, ride or hike. Great views of the City and River and aproxx. 5k hike if you do the loop and leave from Brown's Island side. Just take your trash home with you, an occasional item to pickup and leave it better than when we arrived.

This was a really cool experience! The suspension walkway under the road bridge is so unique! The views of the river are awesome! On the other side I walked the loop around the Isle - it was nice, mostly shaded and there were some historical relics along the way.

Went to Belle Isle for photography and was not disappointed! The river was high that day and got great pictures of rapids. The trail was very well kept; however, the area where you come off the foot bridge was surprisingly unkempt. This is a historical site that should be much better maintained than it is. I understand funding is probably not available and volunteers are spread thin, but this could be a real jewel for the area!!!

Belle Island is a great place to walk, ride, run or get away from the traffic of the city. While the historical signage is in somewhat disrepair, it is still possible to get a sense of the history of the island. The views of the river and city are spectacular. There are several trails around the island. The have lots of people on the weekend.
