Runner Notes

This winds through neighborhoods but keeps you off the streets.

Description

Another trail in an urban setting that offers multiple locations to enter and exit. You can just do this trail or you can link to the Heritage Trail to make a circuit around this part of the city. In all the circuit is about 3 miles--a great afternoon run. Relatively flat as well!
