This is a fantastic path! The actual trail around Newport Landing is only 3.6 miles, however. There is another portion of trail on the other side of 180th. I did a little extra today and made this walk 5.15 miles. The trail is wide, in great condition, mile-marked, and is a good balance of ups and downs. It'd be great for walking, running, or biking.

I biked this trail on a beautiful Saturday morning in May. The crowd was pretty light. I looped the lake twice and also went over to the Prairie View Lake Trail on the other side of 180th Street. The Newport Landing side of the trail is paved and well maintained with gentle ups and downs along the way. There are nice views of the lake and also the fields surrounding the area. The area seems rife with activities--fishing, boating, walking, biking, etc. There were also a dozen, or so, Canadian geese along the trail just hanging out. Overall, I really enjoyed this trail.
