This is a great trail for all ages. You see people of every age out walking, jogging, bicycling, and roller blading. You don't have to wald the whole thing but can park your car and walk a while then double back. The rest rooms and food stand is great--especially while my husband is fishing! We really enjoy just spending the day fishing, walking, and picnicing in a nearby grassy area! Very enjoyable!
