nicely paved. did it on a Wednesday evening and it was too busy for my preference. water seemed really low but potential to be very pretty.

This really is a great paved and bridge trail. It tends to get a little packed on weekends, but the main thing to watch out for is bikers looping the path. If you bring a dog, be ready for all kinds of wildlife, we have seen ducks, geese, snapping turtles, deer, and many other animals. It has plenty of elevation change which makes for a good workout!

We walked this trial for the first time today with our 2 9 year old girls. We had a blast and it really was an easy walk!

Loved it! New to the area & hesitant to go walking alone as a young female. I felt totally safe!

Lovely lake and walk. I go frequently with my young son. He loves to feed the ducks and geese during the walk. The park also boasts a fabulous playground.

Great place to go for a casual run. There is ample amounts of parking and the lake is beautiful.

I have lived next to Shelley Lake for almost twenty years and walk/run the greenway 3-4 times a week. The lake itself and Leadmine Creek have become a silted-up sewer and an eyesore. I really wish the city or county would dredge the lake and take drastic means to clean up stormwater runoff into Leadmine Creek. This could be a nice park again.
