Unsure why this is leveled at moderate and 37.7 miles. This trail is not far from my house and I use it for running often. It is a paved trail with few changes in elevation and round trip is closer to 2.5 miles. There has been an extension on the south side of Washington Ave that I haven't run yet which starts near Case High. All in all, this trail is a nice trek for being in a city. The stream & ponds bring lots of birds and waterfowl. I've run across a few grass snakes (non-venomous) and the usual squirrels & rabbits. This trail is heavily trafficked, being nestled in the middle of several neighborhoods and is used by walkers, runners & bikers.

I didn't know this place was here. I didn't have to drive out of my way for a nice hike in the woods. Halfway there is a waterfall which was pretty cool.

I totally loved this trail. Will definitely be going back.

I live here, I would say that it is probably more interesting if you change your route slightly and ride State Park Rd between Whitewater and Rice Lakes. Also, there is an impossible hill to climb if you ride Engel Rd north to south, so make sure you do it south to north. There's another hill on the east side of Whitewater Lake that's quite a climb, but the seasoned cyclist should have no trouble.

Nice view of the Marsh.

Worth the walk down the hill and across the water. The view is much better than up by the parking lot.

I thought this trail will be open in march but it's may now I see this huge orange sign trail closed, so disappointed

We loved the staircase and the winding paths. There was a surprise at every turn. It was exhilarating. We only made it halfway because it was getting late and kids had school the next day but we can't wait to go back and finish.
