Hernan M. on Historic Smithville County Park Tra...
A beautiful scenic trail around the lake was my first experience with Cody my daughter's pet. We both loved this trail while parked making this post, a park ranger came over to see if I needed and help. The trail was well marked and well maintained. All the people we met were courteous and friendly. A beautiful experience and wonderful view. Highly recommended for runners and hikers.
Did a two mile walk, then did a few miles on the bike.. This was a beautiful lake with a lot of bridges, wooden staircases, and lots of resting spaces to enjoy.. I was a bit disapointed that the loop was not 4 miles... Instead the many trails total 4 miles.. Though it was fun to explore and would make for a good jog.. It was not really an intense hike.. But this place is perfect for family stuff!
The trail is paved whick makes for easy walking, running, biking and pushing a baby coach. All of which we saw on our journey. There were canoers - which had access to a ramp to bring up the canoe, equped with picnic beaches to enjoy a break. A set of steps to go up a level, a playground, where there was a child birthday party being hosted. We really enjoyed the open space, plus lushness of trees, there are several trails to take, we opted fot the red trail, which is what this review is based on.
