This Trail is a 3 mile loop if you follow the pavement around the perimeter. There is a large sign at the beginning of the route that indicates the route is a 5.5k loop. Using a satellite hiking tracker, it comes to 3 miles when I do the loop There are in let and outlets to the trail to make it shorter or longer. It is mostly flat and scenic with 3 small lakes. There are clean restrooms and picnic tables, lots of shade trees, squirrels, ducks, and geese. I see dog walkers, runners, and hikers on the route. The riverbed is nearby and an easy 3 mile loop can turn into several miles if you challenge yourself by adding the river bed route which bikers often do. I've added the length of the river bed in each direction for a 7.65 mile hike and got a good workout. Clean restrooms and clean grounds always nearby make it a favorite of mine. Usually populated on the weekends but I use it during the week and it's very quiet with a few people.
