Convenient location within the city. Dirt walkways make it feel more “off road” then the usual concrete sidewalks. Would rate as an “easy” hike with little slopes. Nice scenic views.

I would be hard pressed to consider this figure eight loop "moderate" for a bike. It has some short climbs and some tight turns, but nothing super serious. More challenging is how soft it is with the fine sand, so parts can wash out slightly with more rain or be hard to find some traction. It's well-maintained though, and friendly enough for beginners and has enough small technical sections to give intermediates a good time.

I love this trail!!! I don't consider it a moderate trail. There are some in inclines and declines but nothing to drastic. There is no climbing of any sort. There is only really one path that makes a figure 8 and the path is very easy to follow.

Nice little stroll in the city. No shade and tons of road noise from Powers nearby. Saw a bunch of different birds and bird nests though.
