Somewhat ugly but relatively quiet

First, the positive. The path has a wide variety of wildlife and is relatively peaceful. I would choose to go for evening runs on this path instead of a hike. It is paved and very wide. A great place to be left alone or walk dogs. Photographing nesting or migratory bird populations is easy and enjoyable here.

The negatives of this trail: Relatively flat and would be very ugly without the wildlife population because it just isn't a scenic area of town. There are a lot of houses and a couple loud roads nearby. Was told by the Parks and Rec Office in Duluth that they are paving large portions of area surrounding the trail to make a large parking lot close to waterfront.

If you want to see the "good" of this trail, go this year before construction is slated to begin.
