It was decent. Lots of people. Lots of bikes and dogs. Nothing special, but a decent walk.

Fun hike. Basically a flat trail along the creek. Lots of oak trees with plenty of shade. There were quite a few cyclists on the trail and several people out with their dogs. Good weather.

Make a left after the bridge, make a right and your in for a harder trail if you’re a beginner like us, there are also lots of trash from homeless people, other than that it was lots of fun!

A pretty trail in Modesto. I was checking it out to see it’s potential for a good running path. It would be, - pretty, shaded enough, long enough but I didn’t feel safe about a mile after leaving the parking area. Enough people but almost everyone was on bikes. There were several homeless people along trail who had their camps set up. The other pedestrians were strung out. I think I would only go back if I had someone with me. I’m also not an overly paranoid person. So to feel uncomfortable is pretty big for me

I would recommend this trail for mountain biking, running, frisbee golf and walking. It's nice but has some sketchy homeless people. Be alert. They camp by the creek. Would recommend to stay on paved trail. It's a nice escape for an urban area.

Love this trail! For the most part feels safe. When you get to the dirt side of the creek there are some homeless that camp out and you feel less safe alone. For most of the trail there’s lots of people around playing disc golf. Beautiful river side views.

Running

The trail is connected to a really well maintained network of pavement and gravel on the sides if you dont like running on pavement. I didn't run the trail, I just ran around and checked things out. There are a moderate amount of people but they are all respectful towards others enjoying themself on the trail.

First to Review

Saw the sign on the end of Coffee Rd last week so i decided to do it. No markers other than at the beginning so I hiked the widest points of both side and didn't do much asphalt. Enjoyed the single tracks and looks like a decent place to play frisbee golf
