The shortest trail at Three Lakes Park. Circle. The middle. Lake.
A nice hike in clean well kept trails. Pretty crowded when we went, so it is a popular area to visit. Has playgrounds, and a nature center so it would be great for kids.
Easy walk that is very private - perfect for a dog walk or date. The water in the lakes is muddy, so definitely can't swim there, but there is a fishing lake.
A nice easy stroll, great for kids.
Nice for smaller kids with a pretty cool nature center and small aquarium. Lots of aquatic activity in the summers looking from from the big deck at the center.
This was a great hike with the grandchildren. The trail is level and easy to hike. Kids took a camera and had opportunities to photograph great blue heron, ducks, and many turtles.
Short, easy trail. Fine for young children.
Beautiful day and beautiful lakes. I will be back to this park.
This is a beautiful lake. Once we got by the shelter things quieted down.
This is the prettiest trail in the park. It was fun to watch the big birds fishing.
Three beautiful lakes. Especially the one to the right.
This is the biggest lake. I did it on Forth of July weekend and it was busy. The traffic died out once I got around back. This lake appears to be two lakes if you start around it clockwise but that is just a big peninsular and not a land separation of two lakes. Around back there are what appear to be brick kilns and future around is swamp.
Of the three lakes this is the most beautiful AND the least traveled. I did it on a 4th of July weekend and had it to my self. The other two lakes were mobbed. It was a very beautiful day so maybe that added something to the beauty of the lake, but I think it would be a joy any time.
When it comes to easy, this one is capital easy. It is paved part of the way and level all of the way. Maybe I should have given it a five??? Beautiful lake, beautiful forest and it was a nice day for a walk.
A beautiful day, beautiful lakes, beautiful forest but maybe too many people. The long 4th of July weekend ha certainly brought them out. These trails are shaded most of the way so the 90 degree weather was not a factor. The lake to the right has many different tree species marked. The lake to the left had humans fishing and the lake to the right had eagles fishing. The trails are also very level so if somebody had limited ability but wanted to hike a beautiful trail, this is the right place.
Very nice wooded county park with trails around the lakes. Open year around and fairly popular because of urban location. Easy trails with a nice nature center.
The lakes are old gravel pits used to build I95 nearby. They are shallow, and two are open for fishing. The park borders the swamp, and wildlife is common. I have seen otters, beavers, various snakes and birds. The trails go around the lakes and West into the woods on the former access road. There is a nice nature center with a huge aquarium with native fish. In the 1960's the area was barren red clay. The transition to forest is amazing.
