Trails flat and well maintained. Good views of swamp.

Winds between several fairly stagnant ponds, so the insects are intense and aggressive. Interesting scenery and mix of boardwalk and gravel, so it would probably be great to vist outside of the buggiest months.

Did the short hike (about a mile) around the large lake. Went in July around dinner time. The bugs were insane, even with bug spray on. A lot of the trail is sloped away from the lake so you're constantly walking with the ground slanted to the side. It might have been tolerable if not for the bugs.

I haven't checked out the trail off Old Mill Rd but we did try the trail around the pond just before the archery area. It is quiet and peaceful but not good for running. It can get narrow with low hanging branches, bushes and grass on the trail. It's nice for an evening stroll at sunset, which is beautiful. Watch for geese feces on the grassy area.

The archery is great though. Must have your own bow and arrows. It's a great place for all ages to safely practice.

If you access the park from Old Mill Rd instead, that is much better for trail running. Lots of great loops and turns through ponds and over boardwalks.

Not a great trail running course. If running too fast you are bound to sneak up on a big snake or geese and their gooslings. On the other hand if you are hiking and looking for wildlife, this is a great place to hike.
