Very easy but nice walk on a mostly flat trail around a beautiful lake in the center of Oakland. Always great for people watching.

Good city walk. Use to work close by with time on my hands so i did it more than a few times. Not as good in the middle of the summer when the lake can have a bit of a smell to it.

Nice urban pleasant walk. It's scenic and there are lots of great restaurants and pit stops for kids.
