Conveniently located. Much open space that takes you away from homes and traffic. Unfortunately right next to a landfill which is gross when you sit to think about it. Regardless it's an enjoyable place to escape and walk.

Built on a garbage dump, this desolate, dead-tree lined trail most resembles a post apocalyptic wasteland.

packed gravel is like an additional shock absorber for running.

Short, but cool trail and beautiful area! You cross the lake at 2 bridges and across the island. Was there mid-day on a Thursday - plenty of people (bike/walk/run/walking dogs/fishing) there is a boat ramp, but there was a box for ramp fees. Caught bluegill, small perch and bass. Saw red-tailed hawk and Caspian Tern. :)
