Love the location of this trail for walking and biking. Its quiet and safe. I like how the trail goes under the roads and hooks up to other major trails.

Over 10 miles (one way) of paved bike, hike, or jogging trail. No cars to worry about going up or down this trail. Underpass at all the main cross roads. Water stations on the trail but still take your own supply. No bathroom stations so...More

We were looking for a place to hike and came across this on Trip Advisor. Beautiful park and trail. We went for a long walk. We just wish we would have had our bikes or could have rented bikes somewhere.
