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.

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

Too much horse poop and too wide open vs wooded
