Good trail to hike during the day, can be lots of other people though, not all of them there for positive activity out doors

very easy trail. just a pathway. no elevation. right on the water. quite peaceful

I ran this trail for the first time and decided not to bring my dog as it was raining. I made 4 miles out of it and probably saw 25 homeless people, 3 of which followed me for a while. I do NOT recommend this trail for anyone, especially single females.

Trail is pretty when it’s along the water, however it is ruined by the amount of homeless and sketchy characters that live and hang out on the trail. I felt ok riding my bike on it, but I 100% wouldn’t have felt comfortable walking, especially not alone or without my dogs. I don’t usually write reviews, but felt compelled to for this trail.

This trail has amazing potential for locals as well as tourists to have a cool, beautiful, "downtown"-area, waterfront hike. Unfortunately, it is ruined by unfriendly homeless people, drug needles, and tweakers smoking meth pipes. I've tried to do it with my kids and regretted it.

I wouldn't really call it a hiking trail; it is a paved road smothered with tweakers. I wouldn't walk on it alone...

Beautiful area, new trails are complete around here and it is now clean and family friendly.

Nice little walk while looking at the Woodley Island Harbor... Did that today as well.
