it's a decent trail, watch out for baby snakes along the way. in the summer, you'll be ganged up by mosquitoes
the worst part is there aren't enough signboards near the parking lots to get you started on a trail, so it's very confusing.
the trails themselves are good and peaceful, well maintained and mildly challenging

Awesome trails that had pretty good elevation gain over short distances. The Stinks (dog) was tuckered out toward the end. The “Big Woods” have a rich history that you can read about along the trails. I wish it was a longer hike but it was fun!

Love this trail. It's surrounded by trees and is very peaceful!

Lots of route options with several small loops that link together. A great nature route with overlook views at the top

For the area, this is a nice, leisurely trail- our favorite in Glendalough State Park. In some spots, it could be marked better and it is expectedly buggy, but the lake is beautiful and there's hardly any traffic. Deer and other wildlife are plentiful!

Awesome trail for long training rides! I only have done 27 miles out from St Joseph. Occasionally a bumpy section... but overall very good.

Some great inclines on unpaved trails. Kids able to climb fine. There are several microclimates in the short walk... woods, sandy, prairie. Great overlook of Shakopee. Bring bug spray and sometimes rain can leave a soggy trail near the parking lot.

Did not expect to find a trail like this in this area! Great mixed terrain with some awesome (bigger) hills, beautiful woods, great prairies, and overlooks.

Good trail close to home in Eden Prairie.

So many different trails to take and some are not easy but they are worth the adventure. The outlooks are AMAZING!!! I spent 2 hrs hiking around and was not disappointed

Great hike. Some steep ups and downs, but you're rewarded with nice overlooks.

Great amount of elevation over a short distance. There are no overly large climbs (200' or more). Good scenery; feels secluded even though it's in the city.
Would be nice if it was longer, but multiple loops works pretty well on this one if you mix up each loop.

Really nice trail. Signs can be confusing for some of us! Different length loops in Park. Pretty consistently hilly compared to most Minneapolis trails,but not too difficult. Nice change!

We really liked this trail. Lots of elevation change and beautiful views. It's not the longest trail but worth it. It's also very close to the Cities.

If you are looking for a quick incline followed by spectacular views, this is a great hike!

We only did the short trail...Nice trail that had a good incline and nice view. Recommend bug spray and hiking boots,there are muddy spots. I look forward to going again and doing the longer trail.

My fiancé and I enjoyed scenic views of Eden Prairie along wildflower lined trails. An uphill hike mostly, but lovely in early July.

Very relaxing and easy trail, good for short trips with a dog or children.

Great views! Trails could be marked a bit better in some places.

My favorite park in the metro area. Many trails to choose from. The north loop (between Eastman center and the North Trailhead Parking off West Hayden Lake Road) is particularly quiet and full of wild life.

May 28, 2017. A lot of rain this spring has given birth to way too many mosquitoes. Bring you bug spay. I found it unbearable.

The description here is contradicting. It says the Lake Wobegon Trail is an 18 mile out-and-back trail, then it goes on to say it is a 49 mile trail. Which is it?

It was amazing. So beautiful out there today. A little muddy when you first start, but soon becomes more dry. Loved it! First time there and I will be going back!

Love this trail. It has some steeper hills, lots of trees.

Considering the construction, I enjoyed this trail, it took me a few times of going back forth to figure out that this trail does loop. I'll come back with my bike, hoping the construction is done soon.
