"From the high-rises of downtown to a deep pool under an overhanging bluff, this ribbon of greenbelt—once the town’s western boundary—is popular with moms and kids, dog lovers, and athletes. Informative signs add historical background to the city scenery, trail architecture, and natural surroundings. Though it is true that an urban hike can only get so woodsy, and the sound of traffic on Lamar Boulevard will accompany you for the duration of this walk, there are some surprisingly tranquil spots along the way."
