Really enjoyed this trail. There are many interconnecting trails it was hard to keep track, so I just ran wherever I felt. The park is so small that it doesn't really matter. I would get off the main trail and explore. From out of town and will come back. I liked it better than Frick Park.

There are a series of interconnecting trails that allow one to extend the length of their hike. There are some pretty views. There are upper and lower trails, with a stream running in the middle of the bottom loop, creating a small ravine-like setting. There is also a connected trail that loops around a small lake. There a few frustrating elements for hikers. For instance, you have to pay a couple of bucks for a park map, which strikes me as a rip off. Also, you buy the maps at the so-called welcome and visitor center -- which is actually little more than a cafe and is closed for most of the weekend, which is when the park is most used. There are a lot of other facilities at the park so that you can get in more than one activity. The park is pretty familly-oriented, with features like playgrounds and a seasonal ice skating rink.
