I went early around 7:45,beautiful trial but just a little buggy

Fun afternoon run. Mixture of shade and sun. Sandy trails made running enjoyable. Do bring your bug repellent and water.

Easy 3 mile trail with a few nice views of the Carmans river. Plenty of shade and relatively few people on the trail considering it is a public park.

I’ve been going to this park since I was a kid! I love it and there’s lots of different paths you can take. It does get muddy often, if it’s been raining. Doesn’t drain very well. Also the ticks are crazy. I went the other day and found 3 on me. My dogs love it though, and there’s plenty of wildlife to spot.

Good trail. Nice and wide. Kinda buggy, but we just had a lot of rain.

Good hike today. I took the main trail back to the power lines and turned right. I walked the sandy road by the power lines and took the second dim trail on the right which combined with the return trail to the parking lot. about 3.5 miles

Trail is nice especially by the river. Sitka deer, turkey, and other animals frequent the park. For a longer hike/run you can combine Wertheim which is right across the way. My friend Joe runs here fast and frequently. Try to catch him if you can...but I doubt you can!

Not a very attractive trail. piles and piles of blow downs and dead trees everywhere. If you walk along the river it's a little better scenery.

Nice trails not difficult, plenty of deer.

Wonderful mild day for a hike! Great local trail that is dog and horse friendly! There is a park for kids to play. Love that the trail takes you alongside the Carmans River. Lots of wildlife and perfect for bird watching. Highly recommend.

Nice, simple terrain trail. Not very well marked. The gunfine going from the adjacent firing range was freaking out my dog about a mile in. It beats mentioning that it is hunting season, so be careful when you go beyond the service road at the 0.5 mile mark.

Pleasant, relatively flat trail with some nice views of the river. Beware of ticks.

amazeeeeee.

Overall nice easy Sunday morning hike. The eastern side of loop has several areas to view Carmen’s River. Only complaint is that during entire hike our serenity was disrupted by constant gun fire from nearby rifle range.

Hiked the trail, the tree markers we're good in most parts and poor in a few but the trail is easy to follow. Great for the family. I would recommend for sure.

Love this trail! It's one of my favorites. It's pretty safe, has at least 2 bathrooms open from April-October and plenty of unique terrains and scenes. The park is also connected to the Long Island Steamers, a shooting range, horse stables, and camping grounds. Southaven park's features include a little playground with a swingset, a vast grilling/ picnic area, small baseball field and docks along Carmen's River. Also, it's the famous site of the November 1992 UFO crash.

I've been going to South Haven park for over fifty years, I love the trails, and I'm looking forward to another spring, summer and fall wandering the back trails of this fine park
