Nice, easy walk with a great view of Lake Murray, the dam and the Columbia skyline.

Extremely short run but if you keep going along the road there are some mean hills. Don't underestimate the heat and humidity during the summer. I made that mistake yesterday...

Nice paved, safe, and almost a 4 mile jog but can get boring. No pets allowed and no bikes.

Nice trail for beginners. Straight shot. Not great for bikers. A lot of road noise. Pretty scenery!!! Will definitely do it again.

Pros: Lake and city skyline views. Stunning sunsets.
Cons: Heavy loud highway noise on full route. Possible risk of being hit by road debris. No shade or benches. Limited parking.

Flat but pretty walk. All concrete footpath. Enjoyed sunrise but would imagine sunset is better.

A wonderful place for running, walking, or cycling. Very popular around town, but seldom crowded. Check it out on a pleasant sunny day or at sunset.

I run here several times a week. Sunsets are a thing to behold!
