Nice warm-up trails to get day started or to wind the day down.

I have began recording each of the trails in McDowell park with some basic comments.

Very heavily forested area with lots of sun cover, lots of insects, so many different types of plants and fungi. Definitely recommend this place to anyone who is passing through the area and has a few hours to stop in for a quick hike.

Great for an easy hike! Such a close and beautiful location to get a couple miles in on well maintained trailers. Not a lot of elevation change but you can go a good distance at a quick pace.

Nice area with more trails than the loop shown here. All in there are about 8 miles of wooded hiking/walking trails, as well as a small interpretive center that even loans fishing poles for free. Most of the trails appear pretty well marked, though a couple of trail junctions were at parking areas so you have to look around a bit.

Everything has been burned down so not pretty at all. Stay on rocks there is not a loop as shown. Will not go back.

This isn’t quite accurate. There are numerous trails to explore. It totals over 10 miles of fresh tracks. As far as difficulty is concerned, there are parts that are very challenging. I highly recommend it for intermediate trail runners!

It's a loop that didn't. Maybe nicer in the Spring.

Took the dogs to this trail today and it was only us. Very peaceful with a lot of nice views. Simple hike but still enjoyable.

I enjoyed this walk through an area where there have been strong efforts made to cultivate native botanicals. There are no bikes allowed so it made the experience more peaceful. We saw many examples of of flora, fungi and numerous deer tracks. It is a relatively flat terrain. If walked in a counter clock-wise direction, it starts with sunny open meadow views with a picnic area at the midpoint and ends with forest glen vistas. This walk wold be appropriate for people who have difficulty with inclines.

Beautiful park!! Love going there and doing some trail running! !

Not sure we were suppose to be biking but nobody stopped us. There were many nice side trails we never got to.

Many short trails that can be combined to make a longer hike. Saw several people fishing but the trails were not crowded. Several picnic areas scattered throughout and a nature center.
