The 2,856-acre Maurice K. Goddard State Park features the 1,860-acre Lake Wilhelm, which is very popular with anglers. Many recreational activities attract visitors in all seasons. The large lake, abundant wetlands, old fields and mature forests provide a diversity of habitats for wildlife, especially waterfowl, eagles and ospreys.

Great trail. nice views. some fun ups and downs, but mostly flat.

It was absolutely beautiful. Gorgeous views of the lake. I walked the whole thing with my 3 children. Stopped at the dam to have a picnic. Probably one of the best trials I've been on.

Very nicely maintained trail for hiking or biking. I saw eagles, a deer, a fisher (which I originally thought was a baby bear cub...) many rabbits, chipmunk, etc. IIf you're into birds, you will love this place. More unique birds and wildlife than I've seen on a trail in a long time. There are some hills which were difficult for me to make it up on my bike, but also some nice areas where you can coast and just relax. It took me two and a half hours to bike the entire 12 miles, but I stopped several times to take pictures and look at things.

Great place to take your family and/or dog for a comfortable stroll. Definitely an easy trail because it is all paved, but it is well maintained and a good place for all ages to enjoy.

Very nice ride. Beautiful even in before the spring leaves pop. Well paved with mostly small hills and moderate curves. You won't be able to pick up a ton of speed because of the curves. Be sure to stop and check out the bald eagles from the observation area on the main road by the park. You can clearly see them flying and nesting.

Nice paved trail. Great for biking with one big hill on the south side and several hills on the north. I didn't have much trouble with them while biking, but I did a 1/2 marathon there this spring and the hills at the end took their toll! The Mercer County Trails association has more information on trails in this area.
