This was closer to a 2-3 mile loop. I prefer not to run on paved surfaces and ran in the grass along the side of the sidewalk which was pretty frequented by horses so I had to really watch where I stepped. There was full sun so this would be a good place for a quick outing on a cooler day and really was probably best for a quick walk.

Great trail run. Definitely not 5.4 miles. Confirmed this with a run today along with the park trail map (more like 2-3). Beautiful open space in the full sun, with views of the mountains.

Easy, pretty walk. Paved for a good portion of the way. Good for dogs, nice views. Not very elevated.

Wonderful western view and an escape from the city. Not much shade. Definitely wear a hat.

Nice walk to take the little kids on. It's paved, so not a hike. There are little trails, but again, super easy and not something I would consider a hike or trail running.

Trail has 2 parking lots, one on Indiana (west side of park) and one on Ward Rd (east side/middle of park by the big church). I usually park on the Indiana side (can get muddy in the rain). There are horses training near the parking lot so I enjoy seeing them and can hit the whole loop if I start there. You can go past Ward road all the way to Oak and it makes for a good bike ride as well. On the side of the sidewalk there are some places where there is a little trail so I suppose you could "trail run" and one called the Jimmy Go Loop, which is more trail like, but this is NOT a hike by any means.

Beautiful walk. Paved and clear paths, beautiful tree line in front of houses. Simple walk, first walk I did carrying my then two month old.

five stars for what this is. nicely paved walking trail in a beautiful area surrounded by wild life and green space. great for a walk/run when you don't want to go too far out of town but want to feel like you are with nature. you can choose to veer off the trail onto a dirt trail for variety of a slight challenge.
