Description
Waypoints (0)

This is a nice paved path to walk or bike when the nearby trails are too muddy. If you're looking to extend your trip, make your way onto the dirt Greenbelt Trail. You will likely see lots of wildlife but it can get very buggy in the summer. Accessibility: There are 4 designated accessible spaces in the paved parking lot by the start of the trail on the west side. All of them are van-accessible with striped access aisles. The trail surface is paved, smooth, and typically at least 12 feet wide (but has a yellow divider line cutting the width in half). The estimated grade is flat (1% or less), so this trail will likely be navigable for most wheelchairs/mobility equipment or strollers.

I didn't do a trail but walked along the shoreline. Fantastic experience and will definitely be back. Not crowded at all and I spotted what I believe was a falcon steps away from me.

Nice flat paved trail. More of a walk than a hike. Not as woodsy as I would have liked and the section along the beach was very windy. Otherwise enjoyed the walk. Park at Field 1.

Easy, not a hike but a nice stroll. Can go off bike path and walk along beach. Great for kids and bikes and scooters too.

We walked and talked and bitched about work. Started at field 1 and realized we were halfway thru, then finished up. Nice accomplishment.
