We really enjoyed hiking here. There are many different trails to take and a few that are not listed on AllTrails. I was pleasantly surprised that it felt remote in some areas of the trail, and some others not so much....but great for being within the city.

I will say that this day would not have been so enjoyable if I did not have AllTrails up with GPS as the trail markings are terrible and you come out on streets and parking lots without any idea of where to go next. I had to take my phone out frequently or we would have gotten lost multiple times.

Nice park! Not a hard hike and great views of wild in the city. This park is what you make of it. Enjoy the outdoors for being out doors and that it’s there. After all it could just be a parking lot like in so many cities.

Great trail- scenic and peaceful- somewhat populated (more at certain times of the day) can be treacherous; watch for roots and rocks- southwest trail area of the lake is the least difficult- I save that for my last leg of my run to decrease chance of injury. Blessed to have this trail in our backyard!!!

Beautiful trail, but I'm very confused. I walked the trail as outlined on the map, and it was only 1.7 miles. I did it twice, but clearly still shorter than 4.9 miles.

I hiked with my daughters, 10 & 13. Lots of places to stop and explore. We hiked quickly to the end and then let my 10 year old explore on the way back. Recommend waterproof hiking shoes.

I took my four boys and wife on this trail and we thoroughly enjoyed it. The mix of terrain (asphalt, fields, unpaved) was a little weird but also welcome. They label this trail as moderate but we would label it as easy.

Mill was very interesting to tour. Path markings were a little confusing or non-existent but made it around the lake and back to the mill. Beautiful scenery for such an urban area. Park was clean and well kept. Probably not a good area to be in much past dusk.

Awesome trail. The Boardwalk was closed so I rerouted plenty to see with suttle inclines.

It was a nice trail. Will come back again.

It was a good hike, would do it again. Only downfall of hike, trails are not marked well. You have to figure out when you go into the parking lot, where the trail begins again.

Great scenery and hiking trails. Would definitely go back.

Great hike. Says 5 miles around lake but we went a little further so ours ended up closer to a 6 mile hike around. Saw deer, crane and tons of other wildlife. Gorgeous views. Next time we will pack a picnic.

Beautiful morning hike. We saw twin fawns playing in the forest with their mother nearby. Also, a family of ducks climbed down the dam overspill... Never saw that before. The wildlife was awesome on this fairly easy hike.

I grew up running these trails this is one of many great and interesting running routes. If you are lucky you will see the Beaver's out along the lake. Very family friendly.

I love this area. The trails are really fun to get out on and the scenery is beautiful! I love the rocky terrain this area offers.

nice for a hike. did around 9 miles of walking close to the river. wouldnt expect the views where the park is located. very pleasant walk.

None of the trails were clearly marked. I had to ask a park employee, who was also unclear on exactly where the "loop" was and gave me direction of ways I could go, but wasn't entirely sure of it. There was more trash than usual around the trails. Also, due to the park killing off hundreds of geese recently, I won't be returning. I don't make it a habit to frequent places in nature where "officials" take it upon themselves to kill wildlife who have more of a right to be there than people do.

Great trail. It was hard to believe a place that nice was located in a town so run down. The trail follows the river an then returns on the opposite side. Little situated along the path reveal some history of the mill.

Beautiful scenery especially in the fall with the leaves changing colors.
