A sunny and warm day in February- perfect day to get outside. Trails were a bit muddy, but that was to be expected.

Gorgeous trail, but not well groomed or marked. However, I did just fine having the Alltrails app out while running. Was here in the mid-morning on a weekend and only saw one other car and lots of deer.

february trek completed! the kahtoola nanospikes worked perfectly on snow covered & icy trails. i hiked within 5 feet of a friendly doe & saw a 10 point buck.

Great trail. Very well maintained. A few hills to keep it interesting and a little challenging for beginners.

Wasn't too bad of a hike. Did this Christmas day with the beautiful weather we had. Good enough to get me out of the house and feet moving. I've just never liked hiking and seeing houses. Pretty much hiking in someone's backyard at some points. But overall, decent trail for a nice walk.

beautiful, sunny hike. actual mileage 5.1. my iphone didn’t like the cold temperature:)

Was really excited to hike a new park with my dog, but there are no pets allowed. I dont understand a city park not allowing leashed pets.

Great trail, went running on today. The trees have begun fall foliage colors and on this sunny morning were very beautiful. Saw a doe grazing in the forest from the river loop trail. Many bold black squirrels and blue jays darting about are easily spotted. Hills are tough for runners, probably not very hard if your walking them. I almost rated 5 star but the paved sections bummed me out enough to take away that nature feeling.

It is a nice trail. I think it is definitely on the easy side of moderate. Lots of wildlife. I saw a 16 turkeys crossing the trail to get closer to the river and lots of deer.

Fun, shady, breezy. I was skeptical of the moderate rating at first because it started as pavement, but quickly became a pretty forest hike. Lots of black squirrels, chipmunks, ground squirrels, deer, and I came across a pet cemetery from the 30s/40s.

great trails, lots of scenery and good for the whole family!

Great trail!

It was really enjoyable. I’m a new hiker, only really have hiked in the last 6 months with a few hikes over the years. It definitely is fairly easy with a few hills here and there but definitely not too challenging for a beginner in decent shape. The trails have pavement, rocks, sand/mud and when I went it was mostly dry. There’s a river and I saw some wildlife such as, wild turkeys, chipmunks, squirrels, and deer. It wasn’t too busy when I went but there seem t he events here a lot in the public areas such as weddings and picnics.

Very nice trail with a lot of possible activities, esp. for kids. Parts of the trail are a little muddy maybe because of the rain yesterday, but it didn’t bother me. Lots of wild flowers and berries! Saw a few deers along the trail! Amazing trail!

a little rain is good for training! troop 263 is ready for manistee. the trail is i. excellent shape

We absolutely loved this hike. Felt like we went up north without having to leave the metro area. Lots of delicious wild black raspberries and mulberries to feast on too. If you have a kid, even better. The kids camp area is super well done!

My favorite park so far

A great hike for beginners! Beautiful scenery

Good, wish it was more challenging though.

What a surprise! It’s a shorter trail but the hills and views make it worth it! I’ve been on longer hikes and the sights don’t compare. Saw about 5 deer and 2 turkeys. Don’t be scared of going off trail! Little to no people for a Friday night. No bikes are allowed on the trail. Sadly, no doggos as well, which is BS because who doesn’t like doggos?! Semi paved/dirt/wood chip type of trail.

Great trail, tons of off-trails. Well-kept and a lot of birds/deer.
