Nice variety of trails here, some steeper than others. Great views of Flathead Valley from the top. Mature Center at top has nice info and educational programs for all ages. Great 1-2 hour hikes; family friendly; close to town and convenient!

This was a deceiving hike as it appeared like a horse training center up front with the mountain behind. Beautiful views, we took our young kids and they did just fine. While descending down at approx 9:30pm, a mountain lion appeared behind a bush and looked at us, but continued down the mountain unphased. There were a few deer legs hung over branches throughout the trail and lots of horse poop to avoid as well. A fun hike with pretty views!

This isn't exactly the same trail, but close enough. Take the PC road to top of Chase trail, where it links up with the Foys to Blacktail trail, then down through Chase Forest and up the Boundary trail to the top of the Overlook. Next, down the Notch trail and back to parking lot.

Fantastic variety of trails here for hikers of all levels. We hiked with five children ages 5-8, and they enjoyed it. Recommended if you’re looking for a shorter, 1-2 hour hike.

Should have probably read the full description of the trail on here before setting out. definitely missed some turns since I didn't know which trail to follow when. but oh well. still enjoyed the 4 mile hike I did.

Beautiful hike!!!! It’s a must for training for long hikes. But the only down fall is the horse poo on the trails. If I have to clean up after my dogs. I think horse riders should have to have poop bags on the horses.

Listen up dog walkers! The rule is to keep your dog on a leash and it is there for good reason. I am a horse rider and since Heron park is an equestrian park too, it is extremely rude and incompetent of anyone who lets their dog off the leash. If your dog comes up to my horse and starts jumping on it and barking: 1) my horse my get scared, throw me off, maybe run away... and whose insurance am I billing for any injuries to me or my horse? Yours...since the rules are clearly stated. 2) If your dog runs up and starts attacking my horse my bet is that my horse or any other horse out there will kick or stomp you dog, potentially killing it and that's on you! So do everyone and your dog a favor and follow the rules or stay out. They're there for everyone and you're not exempt, not even you tourists!

There’s flatter and more trafficked parts of the trail and also steeper and less trafficked parts. It’s really nice because it’s so varied. Nice overlooks, very gorgeous forest.

We really enjoyed this hike. We ended up hiking in a different way than we intended but we got to the top none the less. There are a lot of intersecting trails with little to no markings. There are plenty of overlooks to enjoy the view of the valley.

Nice hike, but if you want something more challenging, start at the bottom and take the Cliff Trail up. I do that one about 2-3 times throughout the work week and it helps keep me conditioned for bigger hikes on the weekends!

Nice forest setting but no really good views unless you enjoy looking at the city from above. Still, a nice little slice of forest close to town.

This trail offers a lot of great views, it connects to the Notch Trail, so you can decide on different trails at your leisure. the loop can take you into another part of the forest so make sure you grab a map for a small $1 donation.

Wonderful hike with beautiful views please keep your dogs on a leash, not only is it the rules, it’s rude and obnoxious to not keep them under control.

Beautiful views at the top. We made the mistake of taking the Lone Pine trail down (easy), then taking a much more difficult trail up (not easy!). Stick to the lone pine path or you’ll probably regret it.

Great moderate, easy access hike. Many secondary trails to vary your route. Side trails provide access to top and neighboring trails.

This is a nice, go-to trail that’s close to town. It’s not very taxing at all so accessible to everyone.

Great hike with the family

Trails are wonderful. Please keep your dog on a leash. This is very important as people don’t even realize that their dogs might cause an accident with a horse back rider. Not fun to encounter a dog, barking and jumping at your horse. Dogs don’t always come back to their owner when they are excited. When I hike, I keep my dog on a leash. But it is not fun to have an unleashed dogs run up to us. They don’t always get a long. Just saying, there is a reason to have your dog on a leash. 4th generation living in the Flathead. We love sharing our beautiful valley; but follow the rules.

Herron park is an extensive network of trails used by folks in the Kalispell area for strolling, running and mountain biking. All kinds of options for loops of varying lengths and elevation changes. It's easy to get to, and you could stop at nearby Lone Pine State Park or swim in Foy lake as part of an outing.
