The paved loop is nice; perfect for walking the dog. And everyone had their dogs on leash. There are lots of water fountains and restrooms on the loop.

Bikes and rollerblades are allowed on the paved loop on Tuesdays and Thursdays and before 11 a.m. on Sundays.

There is hourly parking at $1.50/hr for a maximum of 2 hrs or all day parking for $7. I paid for 2 hours to do the rim trail then another hour for the paved loop. There was an officer going around handing out parking tickets, so make sure you pay.

Great place to run if you're just starting out. Loop is straightforward and really no way to get lost. The loop is about 2.7 miles. Only downside here is that you have to pay for parking.

Great for what it's, paved 5k training loop with some moderate hills and plenty of restrooms along the way. I did it back to back both clockwise and counterclockwise and it's pretty similar, you'll just get a big hill at the end going counterclockwise. Also, if you're training for an OCR race there's a jungle gym with a rock climbing Z wall.
