This is a wonderful trail for both easy and adventurous. Great walk for dogs as well as people! The trails are either dirt, gravel or pavement. It has both shade and sunny trails.

The main trail is paved blacktop, the bridges wooden. Wheelchair- and mobility-scooter-accessible. There are dirt trails also that might or might not work as well for these devices.
