We park at Valley Creek Park (plenty of parking) and walk towards Country Club and other times we bike it from there also towards under Artcraft to Boderland Bridge then Canutillo Bridge and all the way to Vinton Bridge and back. Its the perfect trail for walking,jogging,and biking.We use it alot and there are always people doing the same. Its the perfect trail just to get away. And its concrete all the way. And YES!! It does need to be cleaned up. The weed situation is overwhelming.

In terrible condition as of 9/2013. Weeds overgrown to 3', grass 8"-12" high, mosquito haven with such overgrowth on both sides of paved walk. Not anything as it used to be when was being taken care of! Wasted money spent on what could be a beautiful walk
