“A beautiful multi-use gem just outside the city.”— Forest Park Conservancy
Just be aware that traffic is high during peak times and on weekends.
Enjoy the peace and quiet along the way - it's easy to zone out as you take in the sounds and sights of the forest, and forget how close you are to the city.
The trail surface is generally smooth and wide, so there's room for the many bikes you'll likely see along the way. It can and does get a bit muddy. There are white concrete mile markers the whole way, and it's nearly impossible to get lost.
