Took the kids (7 & 9) and had a great time. Well marked trails. Saw a bunch of wildlife: birds, deer, squirrels, fish, fox, several types of turtles, ducks. Well travelled and a little too many people. But great for a quick outdoor adventure when you can't get out of the city.

Great short trail options when you can't get out of the metro area. I hiked the main trail (Jim Thorpe Rehabilitation Courage Trail) and the connected Trail B loop with my son. We'll come back soon to do the Trail C loop. This is very easy hiking. We ran across deer and so many turtles, we lost count. Really enjoyed the Trail B loop because it ran right along Spring Creek. There was also an elevated observation deck where the main trail and Trail B meet.
Our hike was just over a mile long. If you add the Trail C loop I believe you can get close to 2 miles all together for this trail system.

The park also includes the Meadow Trail that is listed separately on AllTrails which you can connect to for a total of about 2.5 miles.

*There's signs at the entrance that state no dogs allowed.

As soon as I was about to enter the park one of the rangers stopped me and told me I couldn't walk my dog there because she might catch a disease from the wild animals there.
I don't know what was up with that. I think if the animals had diseases there they wouldn't let people walk there.
