Nice but it is really a walking trail not a hike. Everything paved and loops around a nice park

WalkingGreat!

Very pleasant trail in a well maintained park. Rated high for what it is, a flat, macadam, walking trail. Leash dog friendly and bikes not permitted except on dedicated lane on vehicular roadway. Our furry friend always detours over to the nicer than average dog park split small dog/ large dog. Walk the outer loop followed by the inner loop for a total of just under 3 mi.

Bird watching

Great trail to go with all of your family. I saw 10+ bird spices! paved trail not crowded. Beautiful nature. I did not bring my dog because it was my first time there. but I love it I will go there another time. overall the best trail I ever went to! There is a dog park for a little and big dogs.If you bring your dog I recommend going on a weekday. because a person said it was crowded on the weekends.

No bikes allowed on walkways, only on the roads. Good loop walk with a variety of trees and playing fields.

First to Review

Seen Golden Eagles to rugby games. A lonely paved loop with a Parcourse/fitness station trail for a more suburban walk/run/stroller walk. I enjoy the wooded area especially, and the rose garden, which is a good sledding hill in the winter. Dog park has 2 sections for small dogs & big dogs. 1.6 mile loop.
