The trail itself is decently bland, just walking on an empty road. But I really enjoyed the feel of the place, especially during springtime when the floors are blooming. The trail gave off a "lonely adventure" or "nature overcoming city" type of vibe. Great for pictures. I would recommend going on this trail with a longboard or bike, its a bit too tedious on foot.

Great view of the lake. Nice for a walking, jogging, or biking. Family friendly. Only negatives would be windy days and no shade.

Pretty view, but the wind can be brutal. Straight paved road. I took my dog for a walk here... pretty boring. We're more the hiking types. Probably won't be back.

Great trail for riding and walking\running. Beautiful view of the lake. One of the few trails easily accessible and safe visiting after the sun goes down (good for this time of year when the sun sets at 530). Be aware there is NO shade on this trail at all.

AKA Northside Impoundment Trail....

Great 8 miles (four each direction) for time-trial type riding. Views of lake and surrounding area are ok, but I use this trial for building cardio. Best during the week, weekends are packed with slow traffic.

If you are looking for technical riding, this is exactly the opposie.
