  • Fantastic trail suitable for road bikes. Smooth path and well maintained, but could do with some more water fountains along the way. From the car park to the end is 25km, so 50km for the return , which is pretty good. A few stores at the end to refuel and done lovely views.
  • Great scenery! Went for a 6 mile rollerblade and the pavement is so smooth. Very nice and well kept facilities, everyone was so friendly.
  • Flat paved bicycle trail. Excellent for cycling. Easily 50 km out and back.
  • Trail is beautiful and has a wide paved path for biking and running. It can be loud with the street right next to it. Be careful with cars coming in and out of the buildings along the path. Trails for horseback riding and hiking. Safe area and natural scenery.
  • Good for what it is. It's a straight path though so if you go enough it gets kinda boring
