Wide paved greenway with some boardwalks. I love that there are several access points in the area. Can be crowded at times and it passes under the highway, so it can be noisy. The area is majority floodplain, so avoid during/after heavy rainstorms. Trail follows along creek for a good bit. Overall a great place for an easy run or walk.

Visited for the first time today and I have nothing negative to say! There's a basketball and volleyball court, a baseball and soccer field, a dog park, playgrounds, picnic areas, and of course many different hiking trails. I hiked a few miles today and it was very pleasant. Definitely will be visiting again soon.

Very fun ride! Not too easy, but still a great workout

Great MTB track. A little bit tough as very rooty, but excellent for training. Get assured about direction of trail as sometimes it could be challenging.

It is an easy green way to ride with the bike. Great for family and keep muscles hot away from cars.

Nice easy beginner trail. Not sure why it is rated moderate? Cool get away in a big city.

Nice trail, but definitely need to be marked better. No trail maps provided either

Great gem close to the city

Very easy beginner greenway. All paved and flat. If you do the whole greenway the distance is 5.3 miles from the elementary school entrance.
