Please be prepared to pay entrance fee- it was $8 for today (which we were not expecting).
There are cool aspects of the park- archery range, kiddie train, glider field.
There is a nature reserve but I cannot comment as it was closed today.
The walkway around "Horseshoe Lake" was a disgrace- crumbling into the filthy water with debris floating in it as well as entirely covered in some places with goose poop.
We will likely return because it's close to our home but not sure I'd recommend traveling a distance to come here.

All and all, the El Dorado Park Nature Trail was a good trail. It went beyond my expectation for being in the city, and there was lots of wildlife.

I would recommend it either for a quick and easy hike with the boys or a nice romantic getaway for couples.

I would walk it again. I say walk because it was not a hike. It was a walk on the trail, which I don't mind if it is scenic and long enough.

I would recommend you take the 1/4 mile nature hike first, take a picture of the map second, and depending on how much time you have choose either the 1 or 2 mile hike.

The trail was easy to follow and it is hard to get lost, which is a plus for inexperienced hikers or people who jump into it blindly.

Lots of great scenic spots, although parking was 6 dollars, and there tends to be lots of people. Also, you can't bring dogs. I would recommend going early.

Great trail for strollers!

Great and peaceful place to take family. Easy walk/hike type of trail.

Great place to get out and walk and enjoy nature at a slow pace, plenty of wildlife to see! It's 5$ for weekday parking and you have access to a lot of nice areas. the trail is where we spent our time, and it was a enjoyable small hike.
