I used to love this path back when I roller-bladed on a regular basis. It provides a good challenge with a lot of variety. I wouldn't recommend it for beginners as there are some pretty steep downhills (had one bad wipeout myself, but luckily nothing broken).

Paved. If it was unpaved, it’d be safer when wet. This place all slippy when wet my dudes.

Really not bad for a paved trail - a lot of deer hang out in this park, they mostly ignore people. Drive slowly since they cross the roads quite a bit.

I guess this counts as a trail, it's certainly a walk that I enjoy. Spirits in the Garden was my favorite event last year, and of course the Japanese Festival is always great.

the lack of dogs is disappointing. nice elevation gains for such a short tail.

Easy, semi-paved. There’s a fair amount of people since it’s in a metropolitan area.

Today was a super nice day! The trails had a decent amount of people including kids and animals, but that was okay with me.

It’s the perfect place to go with your family. It’s safe and co clean. You can get your coffee or ice cream then you can stop by there to spend valuable time. It’s also amazing place to walk/hiking/jogging and so on.

paved trail. can get crowded at times. they are making it longer though. I ran the part from Orlando's to where it ended (at the recycling plant).

not a bad trail. some muddy parts. some hills. but it is paved.

flat, mostly shaded. paved but forks off into unpaved if you want. quiet. nice views of the river.

trails were paved but slanted for quite a bit of the walk. not secluded at this time of year, you can see houses and hear highway noise. strenuous path that we enjoyed, just prefer to get away from civilization a little more.

One of our favorite local hikes. We frequent this trail because our kids loves the little “landmarks” along the way. This trail makes it easy to encourage kids to hike.

Great surprise of a trail. I saw lots of families hiking, even one with a stroller! It is paved, but steep in some areas. A small water crossing about halfway through, not anything to worry about. The park seems to be well kept, lots of signage. There is even a 1/3mi trail with a story book posted talking about acorns to keep your littles entertained. The Mens restroom was closed at the trailhead, although it’s located pretty close to the ranger station.

Winter dead trees but warm day (60s) led to a busy trail for bikers whizzing past us. It was a clear, paved path with woods and streams on one side of the path, and homes or businesses on the other.

There were few people on the trail today as it was cold and there was some precip. In the winter at least, there is really not much nature to see. You ride in alongside some neighborhoods or along industrial or manufacturing sites. But overall the trail is in good condition and a great way to get outside.

Very nice trail around the large lake. Heavily trafficked

Nice wide paved trail with some small hills.

I enjoyed this in & out of the woods hike. It’s not the paved loop if you feel like a change.

Good trail - paved but a bit slippery when wet.

Loud because of highways otherwise ok. Not scenic

Asphalt path around a very small lake. The park sits next to I-70 and on the flight path for Lambert so it’s very noisy. It’s a good place to spend some time while waiting to pick someone up from the airport.

All three trails here are paved. However, it is much more like a dirt trail from a scenery standpoint, that is to say, very pretty. I would say this is the best paved trail I've ever been on. Two of the three trails have steep grades, so you can get a little workout. I will come back when it has been wet and dirt trails are muddy.
