This is a great park for children and families. The trail was a paved loop, but the scenery was beautiful and the space has been well utilized. Baseball diamonds, playgrounds, frisbee golf, and more. I would definitely recommend this park.

Very easy paved walking track. Wouldn't really call it a trail. Seemed good mostly for people with kids and elderly people. I am a novice runner so this was also a good track for me.

Paved city park shared-use trail in Lexington, Ky. A relatively easy walking trail which is a bit more challenging by bike. The trail accommodates walkers, runners, cyclists, skaters & dogs. Dogs must be leashed. The trail route reflects central Kentucky topography, with rolling hills throughout its course. Much of the trail is in the open so, sunscreen & carrying water are recommended in warm weather. I "triked" this trail with my two dogs on a warm summer day, taking several rest & water breaks along the way. There is a lovely shaded area along the western side of the trail & a lightly forested area at the southern end.
