This is a straight paved road past some dense forest, backyards, roads and warehouses. At least that’s true from northern entrance. I only walked in 1.5 miles. The other parts may be different. Given that it’s so straight and paved it was a bit boring. But if you want to walk your dog or ride a bike I suppose it would be fine.

We used hybrid bikes and I would suggest they are best. Some sections and curbs would be rough on road bikes. There are many road/street crossings to deal with, but on a Sunday afternoon we had few that required a full stop. Neat trail that you should try out!
