The course is not particularly "stroller friendly"... It is mainly a dirt trail, but there are parts that are gravel, parts that are actively being farmed (be it an orchard or a field), and parts that are paved.  (A recent trial was given the review, "It's too bumpy for a BOB run, Mommy!" - age, 3)
