Something for everyone. Walkers,runners (great shaded areas along the path), bikers (easy to moderate trails on and off the main path), kid friendly, rentals for bikes and kayaks, Porta potty's on the trail, great scenery, well maintained. Overall a great place to spend a couple hours to enjoy being outside.

The canal path, while pleasant, it is a pretty lame hiking trail. It is a vehicle service road which is primarily used by bikers, runners and other related activities. This is what I would consider a great running location due to the lack of obstacles and that it is primarily unpaved. For hiking you are not really in a forest, and not really a trail. If you are out for a light walk it is probably nice but someone looking to get a hike in I consider it very boring. There are other trails which I consider better hiking in the area.

I run this park with my dog a couple times a week. It's not exactly a long or challenging trail, but it's a nice little surprise for being in the middle of the city.

Such a well kept trail! Very nice, wide paths great for biking and walking or running.
Peaceful, uncrowded atmosphere.
Come here after it rains to spot many different kinds of mushrooms all along the trail~!
We found a calvatia cyathiformis that we got to take home, have ID'd by a mycologist online, and then fry up with some butter and garlic. Mmmm. :)
The trail runs along the side of the river, and you can even rent single person canoes to go boating in.
Also, enjoy all of the snazzy looking rich-people houses as you find your way to the entrance. xD

This is not a trail. Just a boardwalk for bird watching.

If you like short walks that make you feel as though you are hundreds of miles away from urban life while being only blocks away, then this is the trail for you. Varied topography, vegetation and trail surface.
