“A wide gravel path with a casual country feel.”— Eric Ashley
Family Friendly This is a great trail with a gentle grade, great country feel, and lots for kids to observe.
The top of the trail travels through a forested grove past apartments and the school. Where it comes out of the trees the grade flattens as the trail travels crosses by Joe's Garden (note the fences are electric). Continue across Taylor Avenue back into the trees to reach a stretch that resembles a broad tree-lined country road that's managed to hide out of site in the city.
A series of turns and slight undulations brings the trail to a small boardwalk up alongside a shallow creek. Once again, the trail is narrow here and the brush and trees press in close. The vegetation pulls back in a wooded lowland near the two McKenzie Avenue connectors where the the rest of the trail continues as a straight shot to Donovan Ave.
