Great bike path or walking with the dog, but highly industrial and homeless camps present.

Nice paved trail on the northern Platte. Started at 88th street parking. Better biking path than walking but nice to be near the river and in the sun!

I do all my 20 mile plus runs on this trail. I enjoy the solitude. While there are bikers and other runners, they are few and far between.
