short trail. Not very scenic unless you like looking at peoples houses. Paying to use the trail is ridicules. $4 for instate $8 for out of state. You are actually paying for parking, but there is nowhere else to park. The alley leading up to the parking is marked no parking. there are better trails near by.

Nice & short quiet flat trail for an easy quiet bike ride along the canal, dog-walk, or nature walk with the kiddos. Perfect little cut-through trail to ride or run from Ocean View to Bethany.

Walked this trail in april and its a nice quiet trail that goes along a canal. Approximately one mile each way. It runs along a residential neighborhood. Nice trail for walking and bike riding with family. Good for children and saw many birds. To walk the entire path you must cross a road about 3/4 of the way. Looks like the state is expanding the trail. Parking and restrooms are available.
