Free to use paved bike trail. Most bikers are nice and you feel safe on this trail because there are many bikers and walkers using this trail. No homeless people noticed on this trail.

Converted train line, this used to be a desolate area with crime and graffiti. It's now well lit, safe and offers a very smooth ride. Look for little restaurants and bike shops along the route.

The greenway is a great experience for any level of biker. You can connect to many other bike trails and go for 1 - 40 mile bike ride.
