Very good trail very easily distinguishable,
The trail had different smaller trails you could take that were a little more rugged that were optional that was great!

Technically a good workout with mountain bike

Good experience! No ticks but we got chiggers. Dog loved it. Got a bit lost the trail markers are not very helpful, thank goodness for GPS. Will definitely use again.

Beautiful and well designed trails.

Well marked trail. Good views. Grass was waist high in quite a few spots but can still easily follow the trail. Easy to get to. Excited to return when the leaves turn colors!

What a great hike! We also had the opportunity to see vultures perched down by the shore.

We hiked from the trailhead at the park to the swinging bridge and back. Overall, the trail was well marked, though some spots were overgrown. Be prepared to walk along Highway 10, which was very odd. Also, the swinging bridge was closed for maintenance, but we didn't know it until we crossed over to other side and read the sign on the locked gate. It would have been nice to put a sign on both sides, especially since it was deemed unsafe to cross. Other than that, it was enjoyable.

There are seed ticks! You will get hundreds or so on you! Otherwise great trail, well maintained, the dogs had fun.

There were tons of tiny ticks. Bring lots of bug spray and water. This trail took about 2 miles an hour due to all the twists and turns. It's very easy to get going in the wrong direction. Parts of the trail are hard to determine if you are on the right one. There are so many trails to choose from. I will definitely go back in the fall once the tick have gone.

Quiet, well maintained, scenic trails. Perfect for family walks and bike riding.

For a short easy walk this is a good place to go.

Great place for walking, running, biking and roller blading. So heavily trafficked it feels safe. Only drawback is lack of lighting, making it very hard to do early morning runs.

This trail doesn’t offer anything challenging other than the annoying sand at every turn. Useless if you ask me. That would be the only challenge on this trail. Save your time and pick another trail

ticks were TERRIBLE even with Deet spray. great trail tho.

Good trail fairly new to MB riding. Encountered several deer actually had to stop for the fawn to get out of the way. Gonna head back tomorrow for the big course that’s about 3-4miles in. If I’m laying there call paramedics!!

Scenic and not crowded. Very nice trail for a bike, a walk, anything to get you moving.

Great trail. Can’t wait to complete the entire loop.

This was a great well maintained easy trail.
On the drive home we noticed hundreds of seed ticks on us. Please heed the tick warnings for July 2018!!

Lots of fun, clean trail, a little overgrown by the lake with tons of grasshoppers. didn't make it all the way to the south end, so I will have to come back later this week. saw a heron, a few lake birds, and a lizard. it rained last night, and the trail was damp, but no mud.

Holy ticks!!!! We would be back if it wasn’t for the ticks. May try again when it’s cooler. That many ticks just wasn’t worth it.

Great trail! Wish it were longer. Im a beginner at mt biking. The ‘hard’ trail is not too difficult, man made dirt bumps, like a motocross track in a way. Had to dismount going over the tree log to the ‘easy’ trail as my pedals always get caught lol

I’ve walked the trail to the north and the SW service road and both are neat but otherwise boring. I mostly go walking off road into the refuge itself. Far more to see, some awesome trees to be found and the occasional deer, turkey, or pig can be seen. Overall not a bad spot, needs to be burned to clear out old dead tree litter and leaf build up and get more food for wildlife, but being so nestled in the city that’ll never happen. Waterway is popular with kayakers and paddle boarders.

Dogs and I come all the time to walk the bike trails and the paved trails. Occasionally we cross the street behind the fish hatchery and wander around over there in the tall grass, maybe chase a fee deer. Love this park with it being tight in town!

I love these trails for close to home hiking/running, but tend to stay away during the summer months due to ticks/chiggers. The few times I’ve ventured on these trails between May and September I’ve returned home with a ridiculous amount of ticks. I frequent these trails December thru March with much less of a tick problem.

Great hike. With the switchback we hiked 6.0 miles. The switchback is real slim with overgrown areas but beautiful. Over all. Great trail system. 5/5

I love this trail. This is a great trail to ride on weeknights.

HOLY TICKS!!!!!!!!!!! This place is festering with ticks; I would not walk this trail by any means again. Found about twenty small ticks and two large ticks after hiking here

quite a bit of trash and heavily trafficked
