Nice trail, easy to walk, clear trail.

Great walking trail close to home. Well maintained I also enjoy the wildlife, Eagles, Herrings, Deer. Try to walk it daily.

Nice hike with the kids. They really liked the bridges and lookout points. I prefer a little tougher retain, but this is perfect for when we bring the kiddos along. It is a bit buggy, so I highly recommend putting on some bug spray before heading out.

It's nice to have a place like this close to home. The trail is well defined, and safe. There are also a few hills. Like one of the previous reviewer said, I love that it is near downtown Smithfield.

Beautiful park, well maintained, level, gravel paths. It felt very safe. I've been a few times to walk the paths. I wouldn't really call in "hiking", although you can certainly turn into a 6 mile walk if you zig-zag through all the paths. I like to walk the park, then walk about 2 blocks to downtown Smithfield for an ice cream cone afterwards. :)

I think I should not try to ride this far again. It is not all that hilly but just a long ride. Also, some of the roads are narrow so traffic is an issue.

Nice park. There is a lot of history and also some docks and lookout points.

A really nice trail in a nice park. It is strictly a bike path with pedestrians not allowed. Sadly, it seems to be underused, judging from all the spider webs and the lack of tire marks. The park map shows it as a perfect circle; not even close. It zig-zags around the park inside the 3 mile pedestrian trail.

I loved the wetlands and the woods.

Nice trail and well maintained. Great views of woods, water and nature.

I estimate that 2/3rd of this loop was out in the open. If I want a sunburn I will go to the beach. I still gave it a 3 because it is a nice trail other than the Jericho Road part.

Nice park except for the open areas. I did not like running down the road.

There are several places to enter the park and pick up the outer trail. This trail enjoys all of the moods of the park from forest to open farm land to wetlands.

Enter the park from Mason Street. There is usually free parking on Sykes Court and the neighbors are nice. Keep left until you come to Jericho Road then turn right and follow it around to the park headquarters. Then exit right on the trail back to the trail you came in on.

This short loop takes you from park headquarters, through some woods, back up Jericho Road past the house and farm and back to park head-quarters and the parking lot.
