If you're looking for the taste of the country without leaving the city, you and your family will love this trail. This is great for running, strollers, biking, etc. Some tree coverage so when it's sunny there are some breaks from the heat. Benches along the way. It's very new and a nice addition to this area.

Great trail if your at the retirement home or the dog pound you're at the wrong junction. It's 2.8 miles from end to end total. I go running on it weekly I've seen deer, rabbits, squirrels, birds, foxes, centipedes cats and dogs lol. They only issue as noted before is they made it along a sewerage line which can get quite smelly sometimes.

So I try to go out this morning and take my puppy for a walk, well as soon as I got there and try to find the parking area there was none to be found. On the street where the trail was suppose to be there is a Detention center (no parking) and on the other side is a retirement home (no parking), so I stopped and ask some kind folks "where is the parking area for this trail" and they told me to go on the other street and when I got there - there was nothing but a power station and it said no parking on the fence.. After getting the-run-around several times I finally stop wasting my gas and came home.. COMPLETE WASTE OF TIME, this trail have no business posting signs on the side of the street and have no business advertising itself as a Hiking trail because its nothing more than a neighborhood walk trail... I HATE BEING MISLEAD and having my precious time wasted

Very nice trail. Not too far away if you are in the area. Easy running trail. Stroller or wheelchairs would be okay, too. Nice level surface, no rocks or roots. Would also, be nice bike trail. Very easy hike/walk/stroll.
