My second favorite place to go walking in Grand Island, NE is along the John Brownwell Trail. It is best if you start the walk at Sucks Lake and go right. Just go right. If you walk around the lake, the ducks and geese will get out of the way. However, their droppings do not move. It is best just to head towards the Cemetery; again go right.
I rarely walk to the cemetery, instead I select the path to College Park. About 1.5 miles along the trail Sothmann Park will be just off the path. There you will encounter more geese and their droppings. You will also get to see one of the best trees in Grand Island.
If you choose to walk the 4 miles to Hall County Park, you will pass the Stuhr Museum and will see more trees. There is one problem with walking the 4 miles to Hall County Park; you will need to walk the 4 miles back to Suck Lake.
