This is a gem, tucked away in an easily accessible spot. Great place for a leisurely walk and picnic. Generally not crowded, which is a rarity so close to the city. Walkers and riders are low key - I haven't encountered aggressive bike riders like we often see on the commuter trails, which makes this a good spot for rides with children.
