Because this trail takes you around behind things, generally goes under streets, and twists and curves quite a bit it makes for a nice pleasant ride.
It can be difficult to use to get around the city, but once you learn which lots to cut through and where to get off early it's even usable for that.
The trails age varies a lot. Some of it is quite old. However, the city does do a reasonable job of fixing broken pavement.
The trail takes you by Holme's Lake, which makes for a pleasant stop. And through another city park, which is also a pleasant stop. It takes you through some newer neighborhoods, as well, and a couple of shopping districts. The older section, west of Holme's Lake, provides a lot of good commuter connectivity. The newer part, to the east, is less helpful but is still a nice ride.
Flooding is occasionally an issue. Take it easy on the underpasses, it could be muddy.
