There has been much improvement to the downtown area. It was actually a pleasant walk. Very little remaining debris or signs or transient activity anymore.

Kind of dangerous at night, and not much to see unless you’re at Monteith for one of the summer festivals.

Lots of unsavory folks hanging around, other than that it's a decent trail for Albany.

I do not recommend going here, it's full of weird people (drugged groups of people) who stay late in vehicles getting high and watch you. Not kid friendly!!!
