The trail is great, it meanders along the river and college/downtown area. It is filled with A LOT of folks, families, "tubers".

I do this couple times a week and ride bike on it now and then as well.

nice

This is a nice walk.  Guys if you go with your girl on a nice day wear dark sunglasses so they can't see were your eyes are looking.

A nice stroll between classes, just try to avoid going at night when the other folks out there have other plans that enjoying nature.

I went to college her and have walked the trail many times. Mainly to go from swimming hole to swimming hole. Also a good place for a cheap first date or cheap any date.
