Really nice trail for what you find in the city. I would recommend this to anyone wanting to walk or run. It is crushed limestone and has parking in the Forest Preserve. It does have a nice little hill you can use for hill sprints. One of the few in the city of Aurora
Beautiful crushed limestone trail around the lake and a decent size hill next to it. Great for running, then going up the incline. Beautiful views of the lake an surrounding area.
