We walked this on 4-3-21. This was a nice urban walk up to Onondaga Lake and back. It wasn't very crowded at all, so that was a plus. As we approached the lake, however, there was a noticeable unpleasant smell and we turned around and didn't walk the last 1/4 mile.-Jennifer

HikingGreat!

This is a fun trail that allows you to experience urban architecture downtown along with the natural beauty of the creek. I like that you can hike for a while and pop out for a coffee or an ice cream cone. It’s the best of both worlds. Here is some video that might be helpful. https://youtu.be/H5rYswS0fO8

Bike ride from Valley area to Hiawatha Blvd...amazing. Flat terrain mostly...paved 95% of the way. A variety of sceneries. Emergency phones along the trail. Benches and rest areas along the way. Green spaces along the way.

I had not done an urbane walk before and I really enjoyed this, parts are really pretty and parts need some attention (mowing) not too crowded on a Sunday

Super fun taking the city scapes in and hitting corners, curb hopping, lake side ramps and docks!!! Love this one! Go fast, be safe, wear gear... HAVE FUN! Awesome race through trail during the pandemic. You can really work a speed up and the lanes make you feel like it’s a track. I ended where the flags were, and felt like a finish line!

I prefer a jaunt in the woods, but this is a nicely paved walk that has minimal foot traffic. The wind blows hard from the lake, so I wouldn't recommend this on a cold day.

Very nice urban trail with a paved walking path the entire way. It was a beautiful day yet we didn't see more than a handful of people. Note that at the end where it meets the lake the trail was closed by a locked fence.

Nice walk a little confusing at first where the trail is and the directions don’t bring you exactly to the start. Nice scenery but stinks by Hiawatha

It is a level trail that can be navigated easily. The views are outstanding. It is urban hiking at it's best. You can also stop at Armory Square for a bite to eat! I've hiked and biked it. Very enjoyable!

Great for a nice, flat run. Don’t suggest running this trail after dark, even though most areas are well lit with street lights.

Very Scenic and a nice way to spend an hour outside. For me though I thought it was much shorter than I expected. You start in Armory Square and you're able to get to DestinyUSA hence why I say it was short. But with Armory Square there as well as the nice views I'll definitely go again!
