Great trail for families! We always pack lunch and enjoy it on one of the many picnic tables. So much fun!

This is a pretty cool trail. I must admit that the section of the trail ( trail to the right of the tall power lines) where the older campers are; reminds me of a scene from Friday the 13th.

Loved the trail except it’s cut off right as you cross the large bridge because of the sewer issues...but other than that, beautiful trail. Will definitely come back!

On a typical day, I’m sure this would be a four or five. But today, the restrooms were closed, the boardwalk to the south was closed due to a sewage issue (a park ranger told me they have a problem manhole cover whenever there are heavy rains, which there had been for days), and the parking lot was closed. For runners needing to extend their run, my recording shows the route along the road and through all the zoo parking lots, allowing me to go about 9 miles.

 Basically a concrete sidewalk, not too much to see but not too crowded. Small fee to enter the park.
