Just off of Rt 78 in the town of Wales. Two entrances one on Hunters Creek rd one on Centerline.
We have been hiking the different trails at Hunters Creek every weekend this Fall and love it! The lower lot offers a 1.3 mile loop, the upper lot offers a few loops. The trail markings are a little off or questionable at times but we've never been lost or anything.
Awesome trail for a day hike, nice creek walk too
nice area have been there several times multiple can make it hard or as easy you like big loop hard Creek easy you can get feet wet
This was a great park for an easy hike. The trails were quiet. We went on a weekend midday and didn't see anyone else on the trail. Lots of tree coverage made for pretty scenery in the summertime. I will be coming back again!
Did a quick hike on the purple trail off the lower lot. Well marked (flashes look like they were recently re-done) and lots of wild life. Look forward to getting back and doing more trails (there are several)
Easy hike for kids and dogs
Enjoyed the north end of the trail to the creek bed but found the southern loop a title anticlimactic. Recommend starting and ending at the north parking lot and making it a trip to the gorge bed. Quick tip - don't come back up from the gorge using the fire line...
Well marked, parking available, and a big enough area you can hike in relative peace without always running into other people.
It gets very wet at the trail heads because of all the mountain bikers.
Great hike. I went down in February and it was pretty icy. Hiking boots are needed! I was happy I had mine. I enjoy that the trails are more open to exploring instead of steps and railings.
I'm so pumped to check this place out in the summer and take the dog.
Excellent! Lots of native hemlock - a favorite of mine - and a great place to go no matter the season. Can get very muddy, but when has that stopped anybody?
Excellent hike - looking forward to taking family back.
First real hike with sterling, bella, and kaymar. We hiked the conversation trail to the lower lot, then took a secondary trail off the loop up there. I would probably guess through a part of the old growth forest located in the park. The secondary trail was very cool, a couple of interesting trees to climb and a good spot to try the alcohol stove for the first time to brew tea. From there we hit the pipeline and crossed a small stream and up the only "big" hill in the park to pick up the red trail. Kaymar wouldn't make the jump over the stream and had to turn back to a shallower spot to cross. The red trail dipped into the creek bed, which would be neat to come back and do during the summer, and then brought us to the pink trail back to the jeep. New backpack felt great, no complaints. Overall probably did 7 to 8 miles
I took my dog out to Hunter's Creek Park, and we had a blast. Clearly marked trails, beautiful creek, towering trees on a cool, sunny day, not much more you could ask for.
I didn't know about this park until today, and I'm really glad I went to check it out. I definitely recommend it.
I hiked the conservation trail, 5.8 miles round trip . It was a beautiful day with lots of leaves covering the ground. I can't wait to come back with my snowshoes.
Nice, dog friendly place. Moderately difficult terrain. Trees are marked but trail system was a little confusing as a first timer.
The trails have recently been clearly marked! An amazing group of trails!
