Robinson State Park serves as a major day use area for the Springfield region. Donated to the state in 1934 by John C. Robinson, the facility includes over 800 acres with five miles of frontage on the Westfield River. A paved road that runs along the Rivers edge creates access to the park available for cars, foot traffic, bicycles, strollers, and wheelchairs leading to the swimming pond, playing fields picnic areas and the launch area for canoeing and kayaking. Approximately 20 miles of trails in the park are shared by walkers, hikers, mountain bikers and horseback riders. Many of them offer scenic views of the Westfield River, including the 17 acre island west of the falls at Mittineague, which is one of the park's most picturesque spots.

Very east, relaxing hike

peaceful

Peaceful walk, Husky enjoyed it. I like to keep my eyes peeled for interesting fungi and didn't spot anything besides the usual. Enjoyed it altogether.

Not bad, it's fun just to get out there but there isn't much to see. Very simple though; solid foliage on a late autumn day.

Well maintained trails, well marked. Fairly easy hike with a few hills. Definitely popular with mountain bikers - we saw a couple groups while hiking and lots of tire marks.

need to update driving directions.

Excellent single track in the eastern part of the park. Well maintained. I park at Robinson park school lot, as do many other mountain bikers. Western trails are wider and straighter, but still fun. This is the best single track I've found in the area.
