Are there BPD call boxes on that path? I've walked above it (via Maverick Street) and since its in a gully of an old rail road bed, it seems like there's no way in or out except for the walk on paths from city streets.

I run this route regularly and there are call boxes. I think I will start running with a self defense tool.
