The Park has a variety of trails suitable for Hiking, Mountain Biking, and Cross Country Skiing. The scenic park follows the winding Pike River. The trails can be accessed from numerous locations throughout the park. The majority of the hiking and biking trails follow along both sides of the Pike River. The primary ski trails follow routes around the golf course. These trails are not marked and there are no maps in the park. Some of the trails contain some very steep hills.
great place to BBQ with friends and family and short but great trails.
There are really hard trails along the park stretch with steep parts and sticking toots: red and purple trails on the map, see the photo. Although, the trail along the river and the golf course is easy and enjoyable.
Super hard to find the trail head. Can get confusing with the paved trail vs. the off road version. Also it's really close to the road, so it's not very deep into nature. Path can get narrow at times but extremely wide at others. No maps/signs/ directions provided on how to stay on the trail. Not a difficult trail. Doesn't feel like hiking, more like wandering trying to figure out where your supposed to go.
Awesome place to ride!
