I love walking the path and looking at the beautiful homes. Some of the trail may be hard for some people to walk due to all different landscape, also no places to cut up to the road you have to turn around.

We had a wonderful walk through the yards and gardens of some of the most beautiful homes, with the lake on our other side the whole way. Great bird watching. Be sure to bring water!
