We just walked the trail a few weeks ago for the first time. As a Southern California native, I have to say that I loved it! Growing up here, we would go on field trips , and see this kind of stuff, brought back memories. I hope they don't take it out. It was nice to have a place to walk in DCA, where we werent rushed. I like the trail. And besides, its fair that there is 1 ride,where the rest of us are too big, and perfect for the little ones.
