I didn’t make it around Bush Lake, but the Highland Lake trail was beautiful. Very peaceful. No dogs allowed on the hiking (non paved) trails—but of course I saw one off the leash .

No dogs allowed on unpaved trails. Otherwise it is a decent walk.

A beautiful nature preserve in the city. A true enclave. You wouldn’t guess a ski hill is on the other side of the hill. Really well manicured mulch trail, yet natural surroundings. Also a great outdoor play area for the kids made out of natural materials, and by “play” area I do not mean swing-sets.

This trail was surprisingly very enjoyable! I say surprisingly simply because it is a mere mile or two from hwy 494! The trails were well maintained and we had a chance to be among the trees on some trails and in the wide open prairie on others. We saw a large snapping turtle, turkeys, frogs and numerous birds in the short 3.5 mile hike. Definitely would do this again and explore some of the trails we missed out on!
Also a major plus was the trail doesn't allow bikes, so no worries of someone flying by behind you!

Beautiful location. Lots of trails (paved and unpaved)

Nice and secluded in most areas. Feel-good foothills and beautiful scenery around you. Dog and baby both enjoyed. Highly recommend for a city walk/hike.

Very nice hike

Great trails for being so close to the city. Many shorter intersecting trails give a good variety as you go.
