This is a nice hike. Lovely area. We did get a bit off track following these directions and ended up on a road and having to cut through a maintenance area. The paths are not all that well marked and there are many intersections. Carry a map with you.

great hike! stay on the smaller trails when there's a confusing split.

Fun and challenging intermediate-advanced trails. The trails were very well maintained and the obstacles were nicely built, offering challenging rock fields and some wooden obstacles. The trail loop itself was fairly short, but totally worthwhile if you want to go biking but live in the city!

Good running trails

Great trail for a quick get away from the city noise.

Fun trails with light difficult due to terrain and elevation. Not long enough so had to retrace some paths.

Pleasant hike in the woods around swampy lakes and ponds. Trails are well-maintained and well-marked. Paved trails are intermittent in western side of park. Slight elevation changes. Park is in the suburbs near MSP so there is decent noise from the highways and airport.

This is such a fun hike! Most of the trail is dirt. Tons of birds, frogs, trees, and flowers to look at. It's well located and doesn't feel like you're in the city at all. It was pretty well used on a Wednesday after work including a running club that I had to dodge (but they were very nice). The trail is very well marked and let's you add or subtract from your route to make it as long/short as you want.

Great trail loop! I have used it for runs before as well

I loved the trails and bridges! The maps on the trails made it easy to navigate and the views were a great escape from the city life.

As good as it gets this close to the city. Wonderful secluded trails with beautiful wildlife and a great gazebo for a mid hike water break.

A great trail for walks in the hot weather with your dogs. Most of the trail is shade and is very easy. There are very nice wooden bridges around the lake in great condition to get you over the wet spots. There are a few benches to rest on along the way. We took the short trail and it was just over an hour with two small beagles in 88 degree weather. The trail is well marked at all the intersections and the signage in excellent condition. As always bring bug spray. We will be back soon to try the longer loop soon.

it's a great hike, but can definitely be busier near the lake if like me you like a less busy place to relax and watch wildlife.

Great trail with some variety in terrain, incline. Nice view of Jensen Lake—water lily blooms were ready to pop!

Nice, easy one hour loop walking trail. Lots of places to stop along the way if you'd like. I was most impressed by the trail markers and maps. Very easy to follow and plan your hike by following the numbers on the trail map markers.

Trail is just okay. But you can swim and kayak and paddle board (they even offer rentals) in shulze lake which is nice.

Probably my favorite Lebanon loop

I’m a fan

It’s a great 1 hour walk that’s pretty easy. The views from the lake are phenomenal, we’re super lucky to have this gem in Eagan.

It’s a quick hiking trail that is immersed in the woods despite being in the city. It’s a beautiful walk/hike.

So green and beautiful...kept my map nearby to make sure I was going the right way!

Paths are hard-packed with just a couple low muddy spots. No mosquitos yet but there are ticks out.

So much fun! Stay to the outer loop and enjoy all the lakes!
