Calling this 'trail running' is probably being a bit generous. Yes, there are parts of it that are not paved, but for the most part, it's a very well warn path. Perhaps it's a good trail to practice your off-road running skills on? For us, it was the perfect trail to get us back into the swing of things.
With fishing, boating, playgrounds and easy hiking access (and did I see mini golf and some sort of small railroad?), Burke Lake is definitely a winner. My brother has mentioned taking my parents there before, and now I can appreciate why. It's a terrific outdoorsy resource that's got something for everyone.
