paved trail. can get crowded at times. they are making it longer though. I ran the part from Orlando's to where it ended (at the recycling plant).

Winter dead trees but warm day (60s) led to a busy trail for bikers whizzing past us. It was a clear, paved path with woods and streams on one side of the path, and homes or businesses on the other.

There were few people on the trail today as it was cold and there was some precip. In the winter at least, there is really not much nature to see. You ride in alongside some neighborhoods or along industrial or manufacturing sites. But overall the trail is in good condition and a great way to get outside.

I would recommend this trail to about anybody. There isnt much shade but there is still some. Keep in mind there are also some road crossings.

good flat paved trail for walking and biking but if you're looking for a scenery there's not much of it other than the horses near Grant's Farm.

Easy trail, and even though it winds past developed areas it feels private. Very nice.

Always enjoyable - some sun, some shade. Beautiful views and you get to enjoy the Clydesdales at Grants Farm. Plenty of parking. It’s a busy trail most days so we go early mornings

I love this trail to run on. It’s quiet, not crazy busy and it’s pretty throughout most of the year!

A nice, flat pavement for a run, walk, or bike ride as short or as long as you’d like! 60 degree weather in January made this perfect today.

A must run! Long trail that’s paved and extremely well maintained throughout the year. Awesome views of Grant’s Farm and the Clydesdales. Bathrooms are closed in the winter. Multiple places where you have to wait for traffic to stop to cross the road. My go to when I need a long run.

Nice urban trail. Runs from I44 to I55. Paved the entire trail. Lots of cross traffic. Good for biking, walking or running.

Grant's Trail is a popular paved trail good for running, walking, roller blading, and cycling in a suburban setting. It is not a nature hiking trail per se, though it connects to a few short ones near Blake Snyder Park. The trail is level and miles are marked, so it is useful for distance training. Cyclist should beware of children, dogs, and the clueless during busy times. One can get up close and personal with the world famous Budweiser Clydesdales by Grant's Farm.
