Family Friendly Though the full trail would overwhelm youngsters, taking portions of this path can be fun for the whole family!

Most trailheads say open sunrise to sunset. Some show 5 am open.

Description

There are multiple trailheads where you can start/stop along this paved trail. The Valero Trail starts from loop 1604, and if you continue all the way to the Ingram Trail, you can get just under 13 miles one-way. Or do an out and back for the long distance hiker. There is ample parking at both the Valero and Ingram trailheads. There are a number of water fountains along the way at other trailheads, so you don't need to carry a bunch of water with you. A handheld water bottle usually does me just fine.

Other trailheads with parking are the Grissom Trail, Whitby Rd. Trail, Rohde Park Trail (on Babcock Rd.), Bamburger Park Trail (also on Babcock), and Hausman Trail. All of these have a water fountain except Bamburger.

There is not much elevation gain or loss on this trail, and it is fairly shaded. This paved trail definitely makes you forget you are in the city for a while, and you can usually spot a lot of deer along the way.

For the more adventurous, check out the singletrack trails that follow along the paved sections. I usually take a side adventure on these and they are great. But the paved section is nice if it has been raining and you don't feel like getting muddy.
