Grant's Trail is a popular paved trail good for running, walking, roller blading, and cycling in a suburban setting. It is not a nature hiking trail per se, though it connects to a few short ones near Blake Snyder Park. The trail is level and miles are marked, so it is useful for distance training. Cyclist should beware of children, dogs, and the clueless during busy times. One can get up close and personal with the world famous Budweiser Clydesdales by Grant's Farm.

Easy 'trail', gravel or paved roads the whole way. The only challenge was the stairs. Wouldn't bother to do again.

This trail used to be good, but when you get inside Cliff Cave Park they totally ruined what made it beautiful to begin with. Paving the trail and taking it completely out of the woods is not cool (not to mention the fact that they're bulldozing down all the trees and the woods to accommodate people who want an "easy" nature experience that isn't even in nature anymore...what the hell??). I would suggest hiking on the wooded loop part of this trail and completely avoiding the Cliff Cave Park portion of it altogether. I'm really sad about how they ruined it...

Very enjoyable and fun to explore all the special surprises through the park.

I love this park for walking. it's peaceful and enjoyable especially in the fall. Deer everywhere in the park.
