Nice walk. All paved, which is nice for strollers. Had to turn back a couple of times due to high water. Lots of flowers and butterflies and birds. Many picnic areas in either shade or open sunshine.

Nice park, well maintained. Not a lot to look at. It's paved, so it's a good path for those with strollers.

This was a super easy, flat, and paved two miles. Normally it's not the kind of trail that I prefer, but it's great for an easy walk. Most of it is through wooded areas with a few that seem to be a little on the swampy side, but that could just be because of the time of year. the breeze was pleasant and it wasn't overly exposed anywhere and I like that there are other nearby trails in the area for those who want to make their walk a little longer.

Paved path, not as scenic as I would have hoped. Seemed like a great trail for running, however!

I started near the park office so I ran the Kestrel trail for 1.3 miles then connected to the Monarch trail for less than half a mile then I finally reached the Sweetgum trail and ran the 2.6 mile loop which was mostly paved. Beautiful pines and shade. The Kestrel trail was a grass and rock trail that was full of butterflies and part of it was beside a lake. I definitely recommend both but if you want to go directly to the Sweetgum trail park off Richardson for the Tall Pines area.
