Great out and back trail. This trail is fully concreted the whole way. Minimal elevation change. Trails are wide enough for strollers and walking two abreast. Mostly in the sun with very little of the trail that is covered by shade. Nice walk out away...More

This is a great trail for walkers, runners or bikers. It is paved and smooth and wide enough for passing. It features a beautiful bridge crossing over the South Bosque river. There is a children's playground on the eastern portion of the trail also.
