Walking

We started our walk along a section that runs along the road, so there wasn't much shade and it was a little noisy. Once we got away from the road, it was quiet and well shaded. The trail is paved and our regular stroller easily handled and small bumps. Surprising, the bugs were not too bad, but there were some areas with standing water nearby, so you may want to be prepared with bug spray.

Walking

A nice easy walk. The trail is paved and.seems to be well maintained. We started at a section that runs along the road so there wasn't any shade and it was noisy. Once we were in the woods it was well shaded and much quieter. This trail could easily accommodate our standard stroller.

This trail is perfect for race training. It’s scenic, safe and clear, even in the winter. Definitely a gem in the city.
