a nice, relaxing, extremely easy walk. all flat, shaded, part of it is along the river so you may see eagles or other interesting birds. can get muddy and buggy but it's not uncomfortable.

Much Paved and mostly flat from entrance off Shephard road. There are wooded path options and paths that lead back to the river - good to go exploring.

Nice walk, definitely not difficult outside of the climb up the bluffs it is flat for 80% of the trail. Pretty scenic walk along the river then on top along the bluffs; didn’t see many people which made it peaceful.

Nice trails for the ones we could get on. A lot of trails closed due to spring flooding. The Lilydale part of this ride was inaccessible due to trail closed so unable to get anywhere near the bluffs. Enough other areas to ride so still had a great ride.

Very pleasant place to walk. Mostly flat with lots of wildflowers and beautiful cool shade in spring and summer. Several trails within the park. Two lakes and the river to enjoy, plus a small boardwalk over a marsh. Land and water birds and occasional turtles and harmless snakes.

I great place to walk around sunset. I got some lovely photos of the sunset and saw a few beavers. The walking paths into the woods are my favorite. Very muddy in spring.

Visited in winter. Kid friendly. Quiet get away from city noises.

Love this park!

Fun trail. Can bring your dog and let em run in the water. Good nature hike

Trail up the Bluffs says it was closed, but lots of people walking it. I would not rate it hard either, maybe moderate. Although a lot is on sidewalks the last half, nice walk.

This is a nice place to go if you don't want to travel far and don't want anything even remotely strenuous. Beautiful little park right in the cities. We made use of the pavilion area, which has a bathroom and a large metal fire pit that's great for roasting marshmallows or some hot dogs. Cool place to spend a few hours.

There is a wide paved path that loops around the lake. The better trail is unmarked and will bring you to the Mississippi shore where it converges w/ the Minnesota river. There are a handful of foot paths near the paved path heading to the outer trail.

Very scenic and quiet, like an oasis in the city. The trail along the shore of the Mississippi winds among tall trees and is beautiful, and there is also a trail that includes a wooden walkway through the marsh area for a different type of beauty.

This trail is closed as of July 2016 for construction. No date posted as to when it would re-open. Easy to switch to other side of river though so would recommend doing that. Great views.

It was very beautiful but unfortunately he mosquitos were really horrible! Didn't make it all the way around because we did not come prepared.

Cool and shady. Nice walk; especially along the river. You can see the confluence of the Minnesota and Mississippi rivers.
