This trail was a little weird and difficult to follow. Some of it was on the sidewalk along the road. Then you cross the street and it is confusing where you were supposed to go. We ended up walking along the water ditch and I’m pretty sure that was correct.

Not bad for an evening walk. It’s not a nature walk but more of a campus tour. It will go to some of the disc golf grassy area but is primarily a sidewalk health walk, meaning it will be likely lit up come dusk. I prefer a quiet dirt trail away from cars, but this one I’m sure you can safely walk at dusk.
