Having grown up in Woodland Park, I have spent much time in these woods. Great park for photographing wildlife, I have seen birds, turkey, turtles, snakes, rabbit, skunk, chipmunks and deer. This park is so overloaded with deer that people have to feed them during the winter or they will starve.
As for hiking, I suppose this trail would be "moderate" for the non-hiker. It's great for snowshoeing off-trail during the winter when all the ticks are dead.
very family friendly. very dog friendly as well. trails are easy to follow. there is slight inclines and declines and areas where you could be in the woods completely or on a trail/path. love that there is variety of options. not difficult to complete, you have to make it challenging by adding more distance, completing the trails quicker or adding more in the inclined area. been there with family a lot of times and never really crowded.
