Beautiful trails. I recommend parking on the South side of the park if you are going specifically for the hiking. There are a total of6 walking trails but you cannot access all from one side. You can access 3 on the south side and 3 on the north side. We chose to do the south side. It was absolutely beautiful. It was a nice change of scenery (tall trees and thick landscape rather than dry, flat, corn fields). Not a difficult walk by any means but it's a nice morning activity. We completed all 3 trails on the south side within 2 1/2 hours (with stopping for lunch and to take pictures). Nice easy getaway from the mundane :)

Trail starts near Allerton Mansion and goes through impressive gardens. Then through thick forest and by river. Lots of deer and Red Headed Woodpeckers.
