Wife, dog, and I hiked the whole loop in late afternoon while staying at campground. Well maintained, very easy, with some nice overlooks of the pond. Only negative was short stretch on road that must be taken to complete loop, less than 0.2 miles, so not bad.

We took the pond trail loop (yellow markings on park map)...it was shaded except for one small section when you actually walk on Killens Pond Road. This trail circles completely around the pond. The paths are really nice switching from sand, wood chips, small gravel, board walk and dirt. We completed this in late August and not one mosquito! It is great for dogs since the trails are so nice and shaded.

Another wonderful water view trail. This was the fourth trail in one day so the water made it seem a little less hot.

This is a nice walk. You almost always have a water view. It was a warm day so I took a couple breaks, but not a difficult hike at all.

Pleasant and scenic with the lake almost always in view. Walked this a couple of times during the I late winter and early spring, before the insects get bad,which I've heard they do.

one of the few Pl laces in Kent County where you have a quality trail aside from cow pastures and corn fields. the scenery changes enough to stay entertained. Elevation is nominal.

Beautiful trail around the entire pond, it was the Pondside Trail and took under an hour.

Great day out. Nice well marked and cleared easy trail that snakes around the pond. Various streams easily accessible for dogs to cool off. Once you get back into the woods away from the parking lot and water park you can't hear any noises other than nature. Beautiful view points of the pond from the trail and plenty of places to stop and rest or have a picnic outside of the designated sites. Plenty of other activities to do as well other than hiking.

Limited use as there is only a single bike trail, even though the park is generally deserted. The trails could easily handle multi-use. What a waste.
