Great walk with a great view. Small tourist shop and coffee barn before you start on the bridge. Lots of people, biking, walking, roller blading, etc.. Great sunny day activity.

The walkway is very nice and kept very clean. Was just there last night for an evening stroll. Parking can be a bit of a challenge at depending when you go but is worth the trip.
