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
