I've walked and run this trail hundreds of times over the past several years. I love every bit of the trail. I don't necessarily love the dog walkers who think it's okay to try to trip runners with their 20 foot leashes, or the bike riders who think because they have tight shorts on the are allowed to speed through there. But the trail itself is amazing.

Definitely a nice flat paved path for biking, running, or walking. I like that this is basically in my backyard and has some nice scenery.

This is a excellent black top surface to concrete. Burton to 4th plain is a flat section. Bathroom stops along the whole route. Great high speed trail. Beautiful section under the sr 500. Albeit its littered out with graffiti and trash. Its pretty cool it exists in the heart of the city. Watch out for the coyote pack around andresan ave to burton, There is a lot of them. After dark to early morning. I use this trail all the time and run across them. They will chase you. The section that crosses 4th plain to past leverick park always has your typical bum and druggie population and unsavory types. I always carry mace on this ride. If your into frizby golf leverick park is good. This is also a good trip to make with friends and hit the bars along the way. This is a great night ride with a fine mix of city and forested swamplands.

Beautiful and well worth the scramble! Side note, you do need a wilderness pass.
