The west side loop seemed to be a little lower elevation and therefore a little more muddy, while the east side loop was high and dry.

This well maintained system of short trails link together to provide an excellent hike suitable for families. The park hosts three primary hiking trails including Indian Creek, Molly Mitchell, and Otter Point. Each is well marked with color blazes every 100 yards or so. Rain the day before made condition muddy in places but fully passable. One note, this park runs along several creek beds and through wetland areas, bug spray is a must regardless of the time of day.

One of my favorite parks in the area. I have hiked every trail in it.

I really enjoyed this trail. The two main trails are like jeep roads. I much prefer to hike on hiking trails.

This is a nice park with trails for hiking, biking, canoeing, and horses. I liked what Craig said about a nice trail for people looking to get out in the woods and exercise. I did this trail nearly two years ago, took a couple pictures and forgot to review it.

A city park that feels more like a small state park. Lots to do here including camping, paddling, and even a putt-putt course. I've hiked this 4.6 mile loop many times. It will get very muddy following rains so make sure it's been dry for a few days or you might loose a hiking boot. Some of the trails are horse trails so be on the lookout for horseshoe blazes. I've spotted more deer here than any other park in the region. It's rare to actually spot the otter at the lookout but when you do it's amazing.
