Lots of runners, walkers, and strollers. Don't forget to cross the bridge!

As others have said, more akin to walking down the street on the sidewalk than walking around a lake on a path. would be a good biking path for little kids, though.

Lots of traffic especially east side. Cut through Harding golf course for a breath of fresh air

It's a nice paved road circuit, but too many cars do go by here since it's right next to the main Streets and highway. the noise here is so loud that it gets you to the point where you wish you could find a place that was quiet. bring earphones to drown out the noise. Definitely safe to do it considering you don't need to cross the street in oncoming traffic.
