Can I use a 28 mm tire on the I & M Canal trail ?

Is the condition of the I & M canal trail suitable for a road title as small as a 28mm tire? I haven't ridden it in almost 10 years but at that time there were some pretty poor areas where a wider tire was more better suited. Thanks

We recently rode the section between Channahon and Morris. Had a burger and curly fries at Tully Monster before riding back. Yes, 28 wide will work there. We also recently rode the section between I355 and Willow Springs. Had a burger and fries at The Irish Legend before heading back. That section is all black top paved.
