Smells kind of bad, there’s a warning that the water is unsafe, yet there are disc golf holes that run the risk of your discs going into the water (?!), pretty unkempt. But the worst part was all the broken glass laying around — would advise dog walkers to be careful. On the plus side, like others have noted, there is plenty of space to walk, run, or bike without running into people.

My dog and I enjoy this loop. Easy street parking, not crowded and relatively flat. The roads are wide too so it’s easy to practice social distancing. There is some highway noise, but I don’t mind. You can also connect with the bridge to the marina for a longer trail away from the highway. This loop is good to get a quick jog or walk in.

Backpacking

This route gets low marks due to the noise from the adjacent highway, the periodic bed smells, and the generally unkempt walkways. However, if you want a solitary hike without any elevation, it’s a nice alternative. Somewhat interesting views, and plenty of water fowl, not to mention a few activities along the route.

Nice park but lots of freeway noise. Ducks, cyclists, disc golf. Connects to overpass bridge that takes you to Bay trail.

Road biking

It was ok. I parked beside a car with a busted out window, so from the start the area seemed a little sketchy. I rode my bike around the lake. There were a lot ppl walking and there were some kayakers on the lake. The side closest to the highway had a lot of exhaust fumes from the traffic. There are nicer places to go - like the marina on the other side of the highway.
