This is a terrible horse back ride for many reasons. The trail is black top and there are so my homeless people living along this. Lots of trash and very dangerous.

I'm not sure if you could really call this a hike. My son and I use it to walk from park to park for playing and Pokemon hunting. Some of it is pretty but it's in the middle of the city and so parts are also very ugly. It's more of a bike path really. We do use it regularly for exercise in between hikes though. It's convenient because it's so close.

great place to get mugged, raped or stalked. Lots of "outside people" camps along the path. littered, freeway noise and I believe a few years ago in Ashland someone was beheaded with a sword on the freeway continuation. no lie! I prefer spending my time on trails away from people. enjoy!

Easy, mostly flat. Can take dogs and the greenway runs all the way from Ashland to Central Point. Lots of transients, don't walk it alone.
