I really like the newly rebuilt trail junction just north of Hickman Road that combines the local sidewalk and the trail bridge over the creek which used to be very difficult to safely navigate. The section of the trail just South of Hickman is going to be widened and resurfaced this fall starting Sept. 8 and lasting for about 2 weeks. Here is the URL from the Windsor Heights city website with the details and the detour map.
