This is a pretty and well-maintained paved trail. It is an easy trail as well. Walking along the trail doesn't feel like hiking but it is a nice walk. The trail was busy when I went but the other walkers and bike riders were very friendly and courteous.

This trail is great. However, it's not a loop trail. You have to turn around at each end unless you want to make it a loop by biking on 144th, where there is no sidewalk. I parked, bikes to the end of the trail, turned around at 144th, and bikes back to my car. There is access to neighborhoods if you want to add distance and make your own route. This path is paved. It had inclines that are challenging for a beginner biker, but doable.

A nice paved path, some going through the woods and some around the lake. I didn't like that you had to walk on the road for a good distance to be able to complete the loop. It was a narrow shoulder and cars were going pretty fast. Next time I would choose one half to do and just go out and back.

Nice ride. Pretty short, but scenic. The only bad part is the stretch along 144th. I turn around and enjoy the trail in reverse rather than ride the road. Sometimes it gets a little tight due to growth of trees hanging over the trail fairly low.

Beautiful well maintained trail. There was a part where you had to walk on the side of a busy road with no paved trail.

tons of trails. some paved some just stomped down grass. beware of ticks- bring spray. water was decently clear-saw fish. weather was perfect and there are a lot of trees over hanging on 98% of paved paths. our dog uncovered 100+ trails and counting. walked 10+ miles and still did not cover all that could be covered. The man maid paths were a challenge but paved trails are super easy. also lots of cool things to see, like whispering poles and a rebar buffalo!
