    Beautiful paved trail that is perfect for bikers, joggers, and pedestrians. Make sure to reach the bridge that takes you across the reservoir. Has a lot of shade after the first stretch!

    Scenery of water and oak. Paved and marked for distance. Mostly flat. Water tends to enhance the sun. Sunscreen recommend. Swarms of insects often over trail. Run w/ glasses & closed mouth.

    Easy trail with an amazing view. It gets crowded on Sundays, but you can still enjoy it at your own pace. Bing water!

    most used pedestrian and bike trail west of the mississippi. 6 miles in length - good for out and back or as part of a longer bike ride.

    Six-mile paved trail. Outhouses at each end, and a few places along the trail. One water fountain at the north end.
