  • Beautiful place for a walk or run. At night, it's well lit and frequently visited so it makes it a safe option for after dark runs.
  • We went from Rose Garden to the aerial bridge and then back again. Nice boardwalk!
  • A wonderful trail along the shore of lake superior. Very peaceful just below the city.
  • The perfect place to walk/run/bike year-round. It gets a little busy in the summer months, so watch out for dogs and bikes!
  • This is super nice for a relaxing walk. The view is great!
