It's quite a good place for walking', jogging and cycling. Safe and piece. But not much shaddy. Not recommend during night.

If you are looking for endless flat trail, this is it. Very nice, scenic, clean and not very crowded. Also very wide. Great for runners trying to train for long distance or for bikers. Friendly for kids and families.
