A nice rolling walk - great for dogs and kids, although it's easily 4.5 miles instead of 3.75. Part of it goes out of the park and into the adjoining neighborhoods, but the majority of the hike is on a wide gravel and dirt path. This isn't a trail for those seeking solitude as you'll be passed by scores of bikers, joggers, and walkers. So unless you go in winter, bird watching might be out of the question, but a nice ramble with your dog is always in season.
