I went with my husband and dog on an unusually warm February Saturday. There many other people with dogs. All were very friendly and our dog, Maggie, made lots of new friends. The walk was very good and a bit of a challenge for my very overweight and out of shape husband but not overwhelming.
This rating reflects the consideration that it is convenient to downtown, easy to find and enjoying to run. Running downtown is difficult with all the lights and I was easily able to find this trail from my hotel and have a nice run. I especially liked running past the historic looking homes of the rowing clubs on the river. If you aren't able to get out of town to run, this is way better than running the streets.
Run the race!
