Short loop rail around man made retention ponds in a gated community. Most of the trail is paved sidewalk but part of it is just grass.

Great morning run from the hotel. Path is nice and wide and scenary is active with wildlife. Turned into 5.5 miles out and back from hotel and looping the trail 2X.

A nice little trial around a clean man made Lake/pond. The trail is completely done now and it is a loop. There is still construction on the road next to the trail, but it doesn’t effect the trail at all.

Great walk for me and my roommates dog!! Pretty little view although it does not go fully in a circle there is a dead end and then you come back. Great fresh air, Ongoin construction

It is a well paved trail for easy to moderate hikers. I went on a cool morning and enjoyed myself I would not recommend it during a hot day for there is little to no shade. The views are kind of bland but not altogether terrible. I did see plenty of water birds including an osprey and even a gator.

IMO this is a great little trail. The majority of it is asphalt, but there is a small section that is dirt / grass. It's very quiet for being behind an apartment complex and there is usually always someone on the trail, either walking or jogging. I photograph as a hobby so I was pleasantly surprised at the abundance of birds along this trail, which is why this trail is a favorite of mine.

Not a bad little trail. Right behind Vista Cay resorts so it's used rather frequently. Do need to watch out for petrified dog poop though.
