Description

For 25 years, the Trails Challenge has been designed to get you outdoors, exploring on your own, with friends, or with loved ones. This year’s Trails Challenge highlights 20 of our most interesting parks and unique trails for all abilities. We have included easy, moderate, and difficult routes, leading hikers to scenic destinations through a variety of parklands. We’ve also included information about special features in the selected parks. Keep in mind you can use any trail route to complete the Challenge, not just those listed in this year’s Guidebook, by exploring at least five trails or 26.2 miles (the distance of a marathon). Be sure to visit our 2018 Trails Challenge Web Page at ebparks.org.

HikingGreat!

Beautiful trail, great to witness fall foliage. We also walked around the lake, which was really nice!

More like 5.7 miles. Energetic up and down. Good view an excellent woodland

HikingGreat!

The trail is shady and was able to see the 2 lakes, and the little farm. Well marked. Been there twice and could go back for more!

Hiked this in the early evening, and was able to catch a beautiful sunset over the suburbs. Note that the signs says that parking gate closes at 5pm, but we were able to get out just fine at 6pm.

Trail has some very steep sections that I would not recommend if you don’t have trail appropriate shoes, or good balance. There are sections that are steep and are just dirt, so it can be tricky depending on the direction you take this trail. Also to note bot yet mentioned, there are many loose cows all over this route. While they seem used to people and not threatening, it’s something to know. There are also numerous patties all over the trail as a result. Views are great at the top, this isn’t a good running trail (IMO) bc of how steep it is, but beautiful for hiking on a nice day.

The views were clear. We preferred the parts of the trail that were paved or mainly just dirt as we had a stroller. The different paths were great options and we explored new pathways today which was fun. It’s a great path for single hikers, families with dogs and families with young to older children.
