Great for a trail in the middle of a city. It is easy to follow for the most part, but certain portions can lead you astray if you don't pay attention and haven't been before. Also, my dog always hikes with me and I was concerned for her paws in areas due to broken glass. Overall a good way to get out without having to travel any distance.
Great trail. First uphill stretch is the toughest portion of the hike if starting at the Allsop park entrance. Well maintained and places to sit along the way. A portion also Takes you into the neighborhood of Hillcrest, before leading you back down to the park. I always enjoy going on this hike.
Good for short "brain break" hike. For me, I sometimes add a short, short, trail run for variation. AS you walk closer to Kavanugh street side, has short portion that seems remnants of old hang area for beer or party goers. not really a threat, but may break concetration of feeling like on a calming nature bird watching hike.
Nestled in the city, you barely remember where you are when hiking. There are so many divergent trails you can take a new one each time and experience something new. Just keep track of your direction to remember how to get back from where you came. Great for pets and for a trail run.
The loop trail on the north side of the park is completely torn up from construction on a sewer pipe. there is a road built there with a lot of heavy equipment. It was a muddy mess and all of the bridges have been destroyed. Still it's a convenient trail for doing a little practice hike. Hopefully they will rebuild everything in a year or so.
