The Matthaei Garden Trail is a 2-mile pedestrian road through a lightly wooded area. The path was built in 2017, I believe, and is 6-foot or 8-foot wide asphalt the entire way, with several wooden bridges over tiny streams. Parking at Matthaei and walking the entire thing is a 4-mile trip. My low rating is because I'm not a fan of asphalt or flat paths, especially given the other trails available at Matthaei. If you like asphalt paths through trees, you'll probably enjoy this one. If you want to check your GPS, they have markers every 1/4 mile.
