I use the trail quite a bit, but I'm constantly on the lookout for trouble, especially in densely wooded areas when nobody else is around. People like to pretend they're taking a walk in the woods, but the reality is this trail is in the middle of a crime-infested urban area, and the trail offers good cover for the criminal element.

While I agree that people always need to be alert on the trail, I had to chuckle a bit when I read "this trail is in the middle of a crime-infested urban area"
Crime "infested"? Right now people from Detroit are laughing and saying "Aww, how cute. They think they have crime"

Also note that the time of the incident was 7:55pm, which would've been after dark, so it's especially important to be alert on the trail during hours of darkness. The location near the Evelyn entrance is also where I have seen guys hanging out and drinking on past occasions.
I often use the trail one or more times per week, but only during daylight.
