This place is large. As mentioned by others, it is not an actual “path/hike”. There are a few spots with sidewalks but otherwise it is paved roads or grassy areas. Cars do drive slow but still be aware of your surroundings. There is plenty of shade. There are picnic tables and other seating areas scattered through out the place. Areas around where service is held have water fountains and restrooms. I went with a small group walking our dogs. It is a quiet place with plenty of room to spread out BUT know that there are water fountains but bring your own dog bowl. Also, there are not a lot of places to toss trash so be kind and carry with you until you come across one! There is also a playground if you happen to have kids that need an outlet. The road loops around (like a large circle) with smaller loops in different areas. They do have a map on their website which includes pictures of their buildings. Finally, there are a few hilly spots- nothing terrible but just know it is not completely flat.

Please be aware, this is not a trail. It’s a road. The app gives an indication that this is s trail. It’s not. That being said, it’s a beautiful setting and a nice walk, with a few hills.

It is a beautiful setting. Great for small groups looking for spiritual walk in nature.

I couldn't find trailhead or trails. I did walk the streets and found the outdoor Stations of the Cross to be a very pretty area conducive to a thought provoking walk.

Easy walk with slight elevation. Nothing bad. Lovely scenery and safe to walk alone. Paved surface
