Great place to spend some time

I have walked this path both day and night and felt completely safe every time. It's a great place to take a romantic stroll by the river or a family outing.

Outstanding trail. Very wide and well maintained. There weren't any holes, this is a great trail to go on if you're a runner.

Bike paths are not that well marked. We got lost a few times. Riding on the shoulder of a busy road is not safe for kids. All bike paths should have clear BIG signs and paved for safety and guidance. I was not impressed at all. It will be the last time I visit the area.

Well maintained cycling and walking path around the city, through some very picturesque areas, it's a great way to see town and get a little exercise at the same time.
