Not too crowded for a Saturday afternoon. Parking lot and streets were full but not overcrowded around the lake like during the summer. Main bathrooms are closed but bathrooms along trail are open.

Nice walk. Wish I could have did the whole 9 miles but it was getting dark. I'll be back to finish.

A very pleasant, mostly paved and a well maintained wide trail. I did this on a weekday 7am - 9am ... and it was beginning to get crowded as I returned (parking lot was nearly full by then). Mostly shaded. There are restrooms along the way, many closed but a few still open.
