Pretty much as described: flat with a fair amount of dodging peds. Trail intersects many times w/roads--a number of which have poor visibility approaching the intersection, so be careful. Also, the section on Concord Ave is scary, as it's a high volume traffic area, with people trying to speed to highway exit ramps. Trail has nice views and some diversity of neighborhoods and landscape.
