Sarah W. on Alderman's Ford Park Trail
We love this trail!! It's beautiful, well kept and clean. There plenty of restroom stops and places to picnic. Also a place for kids to play :-)
Two $$ to park
I've been to this park many times over the last ten years. This park is very well maintained, and the trail itself is beautiful. Lots to see, but also lots of people. I would recommend going early in the morning as in the afternoons parking becomes more difficult and the trails get more crowded and louder, driving away most wildlife. I normally walk, but many also bike.
Love this park! Great shaded paved & boardwalk trail that loop & crosses over river. Quiet, great views, and only problem is the .3 loop is older wood. When it rains it gets dangerously slippery, lots of mold and probably needs to be replaced.
I loved this trail. Was looking for a half day hike that is more off the beaten path. There are several trails that go off in other directions from this one and would love to go back. Saw one deer, but there were no boars in sight. There were definitely places where you could see where they were digging. There are also several wild orange trees along the trail after you pass through the big open grass field where the gas pipeline is buried. I get what the other hiker was saying about the feelingof being watched. My boyfriend and I got the same feeling. He is the one who first metioned it and I was the only one who read the previous review on this trail so he didn't know that someone else said the same thing. He is also a bigfoot fanatic though, lol :/. Overall, I enjoyed the trail in perfect weather.
