Not as much wildlife as there used to be, but still a good walk.
able to go from old growth woodlands to wetlands. fairly flat terrain.
but watch out for plenty of ticks, skeeters and deer flies in summer!

Not really what I call hiking but if you want easy wide cut-grass trails this is a good place for you. Don't think I will be going back.

Worked there during High School clearing trails so I've hiked this place numerous times. Still one of my favorite places!

The long loop trails are now closed but the park still has 5 separate 0.5-1mile trails that wind through a variety of habitats - grassy, marshy, wooded and ponds. They are crushed gravel trails which are noisy but easy to follow. There is very little elevation change throughout the park. The wildlife is abundant - deer, snapping turtles, birds, otter and wildfowl.
