A nice walk. Took our dog out in the morning for a change of scenery for morning walk. Took about two hours to leisurely go the whole way. She was definitely tuckered by the end. Lots of places to toss doggie bags.

Went here a few weeks back and it was a great loop! Easy to follow trail and super flat for those days that you just don't want to deal with hills!

Great trail easy to follow relatively no inclines just a lot of walking most of it on gravel and a lot of the same Scenery. Would do it agin maybe once or twice a year.

Nice flat trail around the airport. Start and stop at the airport restaurant makes a fun breakfast idea.

Not a lot of people on the trail possibly due to early snow, which melted.

trail was okay and kept. not much for shade or view. it was very easy and good for the kids to run off energy. I wouldn't write home about it.

Hiking

Very easy trail that is about half Gravel and half pavement. While about 50% of the trail is near trafficked roads this trail does boast some nice walks through woods and grassy areas. This trail is very well maintained with historic placards and dog waste bags set at intervals. Great for a casual stroll, but given the distance and lack of cover id recommend some sun protection. Side note: The local Sheriff's dept was doing high speed vehicle training and equipment familiarization on the far side of the field when I was there which was very fun to watch.

Gravel roads for most of the path so a little difficult for strollers but otherwise a good hike and nice loop.

This is a great, mostly flat wide trail. great for walking the dogs or a nice big loop. I did the entire loop and it was 6.5 miles and took me about an hour and a half. the folks at the S.A.C will let you use their restroom if you need a pit stop as well, otherwise you are out of luck. there are few bathrooms along the route. one at the park maybe.

Easy way to walk just over 6 miles if you completely circle the airport.

This is a great spot for walking your dogs, walking with friends and family or light jogging. It's not incredibly scenic, but nice for after-dinner strolls and chatting in the evening. Very easy trail, no hills and alongside a busy street of cars.

Nice trail, well marked. Good for a walk for people & dogs. Not too much scenery to photograph, which is my hobby.

This is is great walk, take your dog(s). We clocked it as 5.5 miles using gps running app. Very easy, but good for a longer walk. Trail entrance was kinda hard to find, but there are blue trail signs. We were confused at one point where to go, but we recovered quickly.

Loved the trail even though I did get a little confused on which way to go at some points. There are plenty of signs but not at every fork. There are a few hills on the north side of the trail.

Love this trail. There are a couple small hills on the north side. We have walked and biked it several times over the last 6 years. Good neighborhood trail. Usually see a hand full of people walking their dogs or jogging, and the occasional deer. Always clean.

First to Review

This isn't the most spectacular trail out there, but it's perfect for walking, walking your dog, jogging or easy biking. It's a very popular trail among people in town and it's quite busy, especially in the mornings and late afternoons.
