A nice place to get exercise, by yourself, with a friend, with a baby in a stroller. It lets you walk to Squirrel Lake Park, which is wonderful.

Anyone walking along the trail needs to do the proper lookout in case of snakes and other animals that might wonder onto the trail.

Many of the greenways connect or come close to the termu us of another. 4 Mile Greenway is one of the more serene greenways....going through a meadow and woodlands setting. One entryway has bath/water facilitues. Stay on the trails as numerous poisin ivy plants abound.
