This is a beautiful trail for runners, walkers or bikers. One thing to be careful of: if you are on the bridge, especially at dusk, notice that all the spider webs covering the bridge actually have black widow spiders in them. Bring your phone, take a look at the spiders, google it. They are not common around here, but they are all over this bridge. Thanks to a biker for alerting us about the spiders as I leaned my face over for a look at the gorgeous view!
