Nice walking/running path. The occasional unleashed privileged dogs.
Lots of shade.

My fav for running! Beautiful park!

I only stayed for a 20 min walk but can't wait to go back.

Short, easy, wide, packed trail. Rather busy for an early Sunday morning but everyone was very friendly!

Great walk but not quiet since it’s still near the interstate and very busy. Overall a very nice walk and scenic.

I walked in today and did Otter Point Trail and then Molly Mitchell. I had Otter Creek all to myself and didn't even see another Person. I definitely wouldn't do any hiking in this park after a rain as a lot of it is low lying. It was easy and well maintained. Lots of places to stop and take in nature of to grab a rest.

Trails are great. To bad we went after a week of rain so most of them were washed out. Would definitely go back and try again on a more dry week. Lots for the family to see. My little girl loved it and had a blast.

Scenic path around the lake. Heavily used, and you won’t get away from the road noise. However, if you’re looking for something quick, accessible and local to get outdoors for a bit, it’s a good walk.

Muddy in January. But bug-free! Great exercise on a nice winter day. Many informative bulletin boards re: animals, birds, and trees on several bridges. Trail well marked. Portapotties open near campstore and kayak launch.

1 bridge is missing, 2 bridges are out of use because they are falling apart so you have to back track a lot.

Love this trail. Only problem is large groups of student athletes run at fast pace, which can be a bit dangerous. Otherwise awesome.

Well kept, short trail. Not much elevation change, probably would be very boring for experienced mountain bikers. Nice views of the lake. Two offshoot trails that were less well kept, but offered slightly more in the way of trail biking than the main trail. Overall, probably more of a walking trail but a nice experience.

Thoroughly enjoyed this; flat, shaded and interesting.

Nice time with fam. Lots of bugs for kids to see. Of course, squirrels! The walk is calm and the office had a good map.

Beautiful! Nice family oriented place. Very diverse and open atmosphere.

Don't come without bug spray. It's nice and green, which is good, but so much time was spent staring at the ground to avoid tripping on roots or finding a spot to walk around mud. That said - this hike would've been much more pleasurable with the bug spray, at a lower temperature (93 and humid today), and with boots better for mud. I was wearing Merrel hiking shoes.

Nice little spot! Its short, but very wooded with critters running about. Great place to get lost in the middle of the city.

Easy walk around the lake. Busy! lots of dogs. 1.5 miles marked around. lots of covered picnic apots. biggest downsides were 1. Parking lot was really small and 2. a decent stretch is right along a busy highway. still a nice place to walk

Went last week, there is a sign saying that the park is permanently closed due to storm damage, but we went in anyway. The opening of the trail still looks well maintained, better then how it looked a year ago when I last went, one of the wooden viewing spots and one of the bridges were destroyed by falling trees.. there was a big fallen tree on the trail near the back of the loop but there is a big enough opening to walk under it and keep going. Still a nice spot in the middle of the city, better in the fall, in the spring time you tend to get attacked by big bugs in there.

very well maintained. scenic walk by a stream.

really nice, super easy walking trial. Good place to just take an hour out of your day and get some nature in. Part of the trial is literally right net to the highway... but it is still a nice walk even with the couple of minutes of city noise.

Really happy with this trail although a large portion was flooded due to torrential downpours in the area a few days previously. Be sure to wear your bug spray! Quiet & in a nice neighborhood. I felt safe and saw very few people there on a Thursday.
