Easy paved trail. We only did the river edge part and walked further on side of river than this map shows so we didn’t do the part through town. So we didn’t do a loop. Pretty busy. Nice gardens and art displays.

good ride... kids did just fine no trouble at all... but I did ride it at 9pm...

Nice paved walk on the water. Not really a hike. But, a great walk and area to picnic.

Beautiful hike, downside. Sketchy. Came back with our window smashed in and belongings were taken. Careful out there. Also to the person who took our stuff enjoy our hydroflasks and the one dollar that was in my wallet.

Great urban walk overlooking the bay. We took a stroller wagon with a toddler and it worked well.

Nothing special about this particular 3 mile out and back strip but I parked here at Vienna and went on to Ashburn and back. Made for a much better ride.

Beautiful landscaping and view of the river. Well paved and level, makes for an easy walk with plenty of benches and swings to stop, rest and enjoy the view.

It was fine. It's a pretty trail, definitely more of a walking/running trail. Don't go with the mindset of a hike at all. It is family friendly. You have to walk through someone's driveway which is a little odd. Personally, I didn't love how close it is to such a busy street. It makes for lots of city noises. But I'd go running there sometime.

Terrific path to practice long distance running. Loops, stop points and plenty of urban and nature scenes to keep mind occupied while running or walking It can get very crowded and social distancing is hit or miss. I have done a little biking on this path. Im a novice and I have to ride before the crowds show Part of the road between Arsenal street and heading into Cambridge has been closed off to card This has made a huge improvement in crowding situations

Pretty nice trail overall, has a moderate amount of incline. Some shade, sitting areas and fountains but no bathrooms so plan accordingly. Roughly 9-11 miles total! Perfect for biking, walking or running! Dog friendly!

Trail was flooded, could not do a loop.

Besides a couple of signalized crosswalks, the bridges, tunnels, parks, creek and artwork hanging in some of the trees provided a nice scenery for our ride. Good shade with lots of birds, squirrels, rabbits, ducks and even a crane. It rained hard over night, but the trail was mostly dry with a few puddles to avoid. I will do this trail again.

Nice but short but if you get lost you could add extra miles lol. Highly recommend for a run or walk.

Nice place for a quick, pretty walk with the family.

Just not worth traveling to this one folks. A tiny short loop.

This was an extremely disappointing walk through extensive homeless camps and under roaring freeway overpasses. There are a handful of interesting landmarks and sculptures, if you can ignore the overwhelming amount of trash and human feces that's built up in every imaginable open space of the trail and the river banks. My walk was little more than a devastating realization of the high level of pollution of the Guadalupe "river" and the massive population of homeless people in the city... I'm an experienced and confident hiker, and today I attempted to walk from the Park Street trailhead to the Heritage Rose Garden. Only 45 minutes in, I chose to turn around and walk the surface streets back to my starting point, in the interest of my safety. An older man ranting about the Vietnam War and Eric Clapton followed me at an uncomfortably close distance; I was verbally intimidated by a belligerent drunk who grabbed his crotch and thrusted his hips in my direction as he took swigs from his bottle of Patron. I won't be walking this trail again unless I have a male companion and MACE handy.... it is probably much more enjoyable on a bike, where you can feel confident in quickly escaping any harrowing situations you find yourself in.

If you start and go right, circle around and cut left on Dorrance Road and then back on the trail, it's little over 2 miles. More of a walk than a hike, some of the walk is on a street as opposed to a trail.

Nice little local hike if you're from around or visiting town, and don't have the time to head off to one of the many state parks that are only a couple hours drive, or out to one of the National forests that are also nearby. There is work being done on the trail, and the north end of the trail between Austin St. and Stallings Loop is closed for repair (if you go out that way, you'll see a sign with the City Parks & Recreation number on it). I called, and they stated that that section is closed until further notice (this was approx. the last 1/2 to 1 mile section of it).

nice trail real hidden start point, believe your map take a walk you will find it. nice view but real short def take the walk to the beach at the end
