This is a great trail if you live nearby. Easy walking trail & snowshoeing. Yes, this is a trail where many dogs are walked but avoid them by going weekdays when most dog owners are working. Walk or run the hilly trail to m-72. It's an oasis in the city, where you'll often see deer grazing.
Essentially a dog park. Despite plenty of signage, of the 12+ dogs we encountered, only ours was on a leash. Had one chump argue it was appropriate for his to be unleashed because the dog was generally friendly, even after it charged us. Won't be back.
