My boyfriend and I go here all the time with our fur children. I don't know who enjoys it more: us or the dogs.

I love this place. I take my dog here all the time and she loves it too. The scenery is beautiful and I can't wait for everything to start turning green!!

This is a pleasant hike, with both wooded paths and prairie paths Some of the paths are gravel or remnants of old streets. There is a downloadable app which helps you find your way on the trails, and indicates points of interest: Asylum Lake Preserve app.

Nice , close to home. Trails not marked well once you leave the trailhead but you'll have no problem following them. I followed some wildlife paths ( human or otherwise) all the way around the lake with a short walk along Drake Rd.

Nice place, loaded with deer and raccoon. Bring bug spray.....all in all a nice fun quick jaun .

Trails aren't really marked once you enter. That being said, it's small enough that you won't get lost and there are plenty of hills to give you a good workout. It's in the city, but quiet enough and far enough out of the way to provide a peaceful and relaxing jog or walk.
