Great hike for kids. Nice flat trail. Pretty views along the river. We hiked it Black Friday this year.

Love this park! lots of paved and grassy trails to use!

Great trail for biking, walkers have their own trail. Do this when I’m short on time and want to get an exercise ride in!

Beautiful fall day! Woods and prairie! Ponds and sunshine!

Not difficult, but a good hike!

This trail is primarily for mountain biking and is maintained by volunteers from MN Off-Road Cycling. It was really fun. I hiked sections 1 and 4. 1 was sort of like a bike obstacle course in places. The whole thing is so circuitous that it felt almost like a labyrinth.

Section 1 has a trillion signs. Section 4 didn't, but it's really just 1 trail with a couple of diversions where you can choose your level of difficulty. I didn't mind the lack of signage.

Note that the Holland Lake trail access off Cliff Rd is closed until 11/30/17. Start at Visitors Center and follow sign to Holland Lake. Once you hit trail closed signs follow the loop on your left. Nice hike. Mostly quiet on a beautiful September Sunday until you get near the Visitors Center.

Not really what I was expecting. Great park for kids though. Very busy.

Wonderful trail. In great condition, well marked, nice views and stops on the way for a leisure bike ride. Highly recommend!

Nice views. Easy terrain.

Beautiful oasis in Bloomington! Loved all the different trails!

This was a fun and easy trail to take the kiddos on. I really liked that a road ran through the middle of the trails because it made an easy turn around point once the kids became tired. All the curves and changes in elevation made for an interesting hike. We were excited to find the leprachaun mentioned by another hiker!

wonderful hiling trails

This trail was surprisingly very enjoyable! I say surprisingly simply because it is a mere mile or two from hwy 494! The trails were well maintained and we had a chance to be among the trees on some trails and in the wide open prairie on others. We saw a large snapping turtle, turkeys, frogs and numerous birds in the short 3.5 mile hike. Definitely would do this again and explore some of the trails we missed out on!
Also a major plus was the trail doesn't allow bikes, so no worries of someone flying by behind you!

This trail was awesome!! I definitely recommend it for all levels of hikers! You have to check out the waterfall it's a must!!!

Lots of built in stairs and a narrower trail makes for an interesting and the right amount of challenging hike

Beautiful trail system

had a blast with the dogs in the beginning of spring. Didn't have to worry about bikes coming through...actually we were pretty much by ourselves:) whoever put the evil leprachan in the trees is awful....but it definitely caught me off guard.

Great gem between St Peter and Mankato. Best to go early spring before the mosquitoes come to life. Great trails. Big open field for tossing a frisbee or football. Sand volleyball. Fire pits all over.

Very nice leisure trail system with excellent signage as there are a number of loops within loops. Trail winds around a number of lakes and ponds.

I love this small but scenic trail! Try to walk it every day :)

Beautiful location. Lots of trails (paved and unpaved)

I hiked this trail because I was looking for geocaches... but I really enjoyed my hike and found myself spending an entire day here!

A friend and I trained for the Navy Seal inspired Battle Frog 5 mile obstacle course race simply by running this trail 1 to 2 times a week. One of my favorite parks. I recommend starting at section 4 and working backwards to 1.

Quintessential urban walk. Beautiful homes along the lakes, and especially on Lake of the Isles. Dog friendly, but keep 'em leashed. Walkers can choose to walk one, two, or three of the lakes (2.5 miles - up).

Nice and secluded in most areas. Feel-good foothills and beautiful scenery around you. Dog and baby both enjoyed. Highly recommend for a city walk/hike.
