    It's a great place to just walk around or take a long run, hike, or bike ride. (And by the way, in response to the reviewer who mentioned the glass: I've seen some on some trails that are way back in the hills, but I don't know why anyone would take a dog there anyway. All the main trails are in really good shape as far as I've seen.)
