What a great trail! What a great idea. I grew up in this city and have been gone for over 20 years but this was a wonderful find on a recent visit. Loved running this trail and walking it with my family.

Great paved trail. Bikes, scooters, skateboards are welcome. Pavement is pristine. You are in or near the city, but it is mostly quiet and serene on the trail. A little hilly, great workout but not hard and benches for breaks are scattered along the trail.

This is a fantastic trail system for walking or biking. There is a bike barn nearby for you to " borrow" a bike if you need to. About 1/2 of the trail is shaded making it great!
