Very calming. Very nice. Good location. I love the walk. You can visit I the YMCA and walk. You can also walk out to or near the park. It’s amazing. You are also near the amphitheater and farmers market. What a good idea

I was several hours into a 8 hour trip and stopped to get of the car. This trail was well kept with some nice scenery. On top of that, the locals walking the trail were friendly and helpful offering places to get lunch.
