nature trips

I liked this park and would come back. I didn't do the whole trail - just the northern loop. The hiking surface was mostly sandy soil and mostly went through forest, sometimes abutting wetlands. This portion of the trail requires crossing a road twice.

The trail was fully submerged at one point (probably not a big deal if you're on a horse), but I found a way around by balancing on a log and walking on what may have been a beaver dam. (This part was actually really fun.) There were also a few downed trees that required climbing over.

There are no facilities here. And no maps of any kind, anywhere. There are trail markings at some intersections, but without a map I didn't know what the markings meant.

Dogs are not allowed here.
Also, this network of trails is for horses, so there will be manure.

Best dedicated biking trail in the area. Supporting a range of skills and difficulty. Enjoyed the technical elements. It's not a smooth trail as there's lots of exposed roots/rocks so fixed suspension riders take note.

Nice hiking trails , great hike with your dog :-)

Too much horse poop and too wide open vs wooded

The best place to go for walking in solitude among giant oak trees. A beautiful, idyllic lake and prairie. They have biking, cross country skiing and horseback riding trails - all which hikers can use. There are dog walking paths too. Warblers fly through in the Spring. It is a hidden gem.

Awesome trails for hill workout - hike or ski! Unique terrain for Mn region. Low maintenance trails and signage.

Great inclines and very quiet. The trail markers could be updated.
