This was a very peaceful trail that was indeed lightly trafficked when I was there. It roams through prairies with Donald Lake also there. There were several very open spaces that confused me, but everything was very well laid out in terms of organization.
There were a handful of people running on the trails, which I think would have been just as good as walking given this is a very level trail. There were also a number of horses out on the trail, and this is mostly a good trail for them or a large family given the wide breadth that people can take on this light trail.
Overall, this was not my favorite Madison hike to go to alone, but I could imagine with a group this would be a fun one to chat while walking or perhaps for a trail run.
