If you are looking for endless flat trail, this is it. Very nice, scenic, clean and not very crowded. Also very wide. Great for runners trying to train for long distance or for bikers. Friendly for kids and families.

What a gorgeous fun trail. I rode bikes in Normandy last year and this reminded me of France! Safe, clean, smooth roads, overhanging trees, and lots of bike riders, walkers, strollers, and families. Can't wait to return with my picnic basket!

Yes, the trail goes to Walnut Creek. Just find out exact location of the trail and some public parking.
