The trail is a heavily used urban trail. The surface is compacted gravel and soil, there are 10 wooded benches, an amphitheater, a viewing platform and five loops of varying lengths. The trail has been designed for multiple-use and divided into user areas. One area is designated for equestrian use and another for hikers only. The trail is also open in the winter for cross-country skiing and snow shoeing. Thanks to a 2019 Eagle Scout project, the trail now has 14 benches, an amphitheater, and a picnic table.
