DISTANCE: Walk up to 3.0 miles round trip (or more or less if you prefer) at your own speed.

FEATURES: What Cindy and Janice like about this walk is:
”Many ducks were observed and it is quiet and peaceful.”

ACCESS: All the trail is paved and flat, so is suitable for those using wheelchairs, strollers etc.

WALKING WITH FEET FIRST: Cindy and Janice say: “Feet First walks give us a chance to socialize outside with our friends during the pandemic.”
