Explore the most popular hiking trails in Village Park with hand-curated trail maps and driving directions as well as detailed reviews and photos from hikers, campers and nature lovers like you.

Nice hike but make sure you keep the app open, trail marking is excessively limited and the number of crossing trails makes disconnecting from technology almost impossible.

Nice hike. We got lost frequently due to the lack of trail markers. The lake and small waterfall were fun to discover at the end.

My home trail. Great spot to
mountain bike
trail run
or just take a walk

just be very careful towards the end and double check your map if you are not familiar with the trails. Towards the last third the trail splits and if you aren't careful you can end up going down an overgrown trail that comes out in someone's private property.

Plethora of trails in Village Park allow multiple different hikes -- out-and-back, loop, and lollipop -- and distances between around .5 and 3 miles. Multiple trailheads from behind public buildings along Main St in Swansea.

Great for rock climbers and mountain bikers. Not so great are the lack of trail markers.

Great place to get lost in!

I go in those woods with my son frequently. The trails are not marked at all. There is a bike trail that is somewhat marked. Our favotite hike is from the dirt road to Abram's Rock and back. No markings but I think there are maps online. Check out the Wiki page on Abram's Rock before you go.

no trail markers. What a shame as this could be so much better. Tree debris because of a large, recent storm. 3 stars is generous.

nice place but horrible trail markers. 5 of us got lost. had to use GPS to get out. I have done plenty of trails but this one needs work.

Very cool trail system. Hard to believe you can pack so many single tracks in such a small place. While it id easy to get lost, the single tracks are really fun. Particularly suited for mnt biking.

Someone has dedicated a lot of time an effort making this system!

Great set of trails, love climbing the big boulders, nice views of the lake, there’s easy trails and also challenging hills. A lot of forks in the road but the alltrails app keeps you from getting lost so you’re free to veer from the path.

go behind the Swansea city hall. there is hills.

Great time

Definitely a confusing place if you didn't have this app! I would have been so lost with 4 kids

Nice hike and definitely easy, not moderate. Trails are confusing, though, so it's best to follow along on your phone so you can tell if you've veered off

I didn't like this trail very much because it was easy to get lost in since the trails were not clearly marked. My husband, on the other hand, did enjoy this trail. He liked the woodsy feel of it and enjoyed some of the challenges that come with it. We saw some people mountain biking there. I'd probably enjoy biking there more than hiking.

Also, it was difficult to find at first as we didn't realize it was behind the library.

Nice wooded trails and interesting landmarks. We only saw one other couple out on the trails today, so fairly secluded for this area.

great for trail runing and mountain biking

Beautiful woods; lots of Rock formations to climb (unfortunately there is a lot of broken glass!); and a large trail system. Due to the sheer volume of trails, it's very easy to get lost, so make sure your phone is totally charged!

Beautiful little trail. Park behind the library. This trail features multiple terrains and views, including a waterfall/dam, trail along the pond, trails in tall grass/fields, and trail along pine trees in the shade. Many giant rocks to climb. Many smaller paths off the main one. Not well marked but recording your path helps. Recommend!

poorly marked trail mostly for mountain bikes

Make sure when you pull in you go to the Public Library. You will find the entrance at the back of parking lot.

Easy hike but enjoyable

great place

One of the best hikes in the area.

Awesome trails! Wish this map showed all the bridges and other obstacles that are around.
