2.5 miles around wash park. People with dogs are not considerate at this park. Nonetheless pretty area to get a quick run in.

Great area to run. 8 miles around the park Starting at the East entrance. There are a lot of trails in the park and connecting to the park for the long runs. If you're going for a long run or a short run you can find it here. It is also very scenic and has wild life.

Great day, easy transition from farmland to mountains. Helped acclimate to higher elevation. Had two knee surgeries, trail was easy on knees. Loved the view.

Pretty area right downtown for some nature time . One side is for pedestrians and other is for biking and roller blading . All paved . Pretty, clean creek and dog friendly ! Walk alongside the city skyline!

Nice area for walking. But the trails closer to the outer perimeter of the area are best for avoiding the crowds (kids, bikes, rollerbladers) who use the interior cement sidewalk.

Nice trail. Lots of trees and shrubs.

Nice place to jog. Not too busy. Paved and natural trails with plenty different loops.

It was pretty disappointed day to begin with.. I was planning on going to a 6 mile hike but something came up and I had to change my plan. Then I still wanted to enjoy the nice 65 degree weather, so looked up near by trail and came to this one. It was short trail, so I didn't want to run but to walk and enjoy the sound of birds and water. Very nice and quiet trail. Glad I checked this one off from my list with a satisfaction.

Beautiful area. Nice easy walk to do.

Running in snow. Just to knock off a trail from the list. It was OK.

Short nice run. I went by the river on my way back and it was so nice and cozy with snow falling.

Great place for a relaxing bike ride

favorite part of my run in the neighborhood. It’s about a mile. Lots of hills near by to add to your run too :)

Nice day to take a walk with the kids.

Trail was open and a pleasant walk. Surrounded by the expanding city but lots of prairie dogs, rabbits, geese, ducks, kingfishers, and many other kinds of birds. Good stroll for little kids.

The dog park is amazing!!!

It’s a nice trail to take your dog on a walk around a lake thats paved.

Nice and easy run, pretty views of the mountains.

This trail is not a hiking or mountain biking trail. It is a city park trail that is mostly paved and well-maintained. Plenty of trees. It is great for bikes and roller blades with some really nice bike lanes separated from the walking lanes. It is a great place to run or walk, to ride bikes within city limits. There are two small lakes (looks like maybe paddle boarding is an option) and a fishing pond. Plenty of grass for volleyball or other activities, and some tennis courts. If you are expecting mountain/hiking this is not what you'll want. But if you want a great area within the city to get some exercise, it is a good choice.

Very busy in the afternoon.

I enjoyed the part of the trail from York to Colorado. The portion between Colorado and Summit Grove is densely pack housing, and wasn't as enjoyable. I enjoyed the railroad theme, it was a beautiful day, and not taxing at all.

Beautiful views. Minus one for there being way too many black flies during this time of year.

Great to walk, jog, or sit in the park by the water.

Great trail for running. Mostly flat and below street level so it stays relatively cool. Lots of bikes and runners on the weekend.
