Really nice trail. All gravel or concrete. But with opportunities for some off road trails I will try next time. Moderately busy with bikers, walkers and runners everyone was very friendly. Hope to go again

This trail has adequate parking in several spots, restrooms and drinkable water in several spots. This is always a plus. It's totally family friendly. It's good for walkers, joggers, hikers, bikers, dogs, kids, etc. Very large concrete trail, but if you're into a dirt trail, you can walk or run beside the concrete trail, or go "off trail" to the dirt bike trails.

I really like this trail because it's always got people on it, but not too too many. The scenery is very pretty, and it varies somewhat- lots of trees of course, and the west side has "beauty" while the east side is more "wilderness" looking (though none of it is in the actual wilderness).

The main reason it gets five stars, is that you can exit the trail at various places to go into the woods and run/ride on the bike trails. For a trail runner like myself, that's the really, really fun part. The bike trails are rocky, have lots of ups and down, twists and turns, and just enough intersections to keep you on your directional toes; the path is pretty well marked, but you could easily explore the forks in the path.

If I was just reviewing and rating the concrete path, which is the official path, I'd give it a four: it's only geared towards regular hiking and running on, well, a concrete path through nice, scenic woods, and it does boast a lake, some large fields to play in, lots of metal bridges, and a YMCA at the west end. But since it has the option to go "off path" to some more technical and rugged paths, it gets that extra star. Take the regular concrete trail for a good workout. But take the "deception" bike trail (just west of the Brushy Creek Sports Park) for a major workout, great scenery, and some good wilderness.

All in all, it's got something for everyone.
