Great trails, no crazy ascents/ descents. Relatively well marked and cleared. Great for trail running, start on on the creek side trail entrance.
Nice easy hike along a stream. There are certain parts that are out in a clearing but for the most part it's in the woods. Short and sweet. As with everywhere else bring your BUG SPRAY!
Very pretty park. There are many trails. We had a quiet, shaded cool amble through the woods. The hiking was mostly very easy. Three are a few stream crossings and a few muddy places so boots would be nice but not absolutely essential . The trail map posted on the kiosk and available online was not up to date. We found marked trails that weren't listed. Many of the trails are twisty and intersect with other trails in many places. It was confusing and we were glad that the advise to follow the stream downstream to get back to the parking area was posted at the park entrance. I almost never get lost but I was starting to wish I had a GPS on today's walk! I'm sure that with more visits the trail system will become familiar and easier to navigate. It was a lovely walk and we plan to go back.
This is a very nice park and maintained well. There is lots to see and many trails to follow. We have been there 3 times and have enjoyed it so much that we plan on going back many more times. Some spots can be muddy during rainfall so dress accordingly. Most of the trail is in the forest so it is a nice cool walk on a hot summer day.
