Highly recommend. The path is paved but there are bumps, I wouldn’t recommend a stroller or wheelchairs but you might be able to find ways around some of the bumps! Beautiful brush and trees and bridges and a creek(?). It’s very peaceful with a lot of birds. I really enjoyed this one.

Nice little trail off the idle hour park track around the lake. I usually run along the lake and around the park but the wooded trail was a nice change of pace. Easy to walk or run with family and a friend. Security visible in the area as well to ensure a safe, family area.

Nice little surprise in Phenix City. Paved and well maintained so excellent for running or walking. Tree canopy provides nice shade and cooler temps. Beautiful little babbling stream as well.
