The great hiking and jogging trail is paved the entire way. The amazing hiking and jogging trail has mile markers along the majority of the way if not along the entire way. The hiking and jogging trail also has maps of the trail along the trail and several locations. Additionally the hiking trail has both water fountains and restrooms along the way for convenience. There are many many places for one to stop and eat or rest along the route. Another amazing thing about the hiking and jogging trail is that the majority of the trail is both shaded and level. There are a few sections on the hiking and jogging trail that do have a bit of rolling hills. There is a 2 mile section that is adjacent to the street with only a painted separation
