I like these trails. There's a nice variety of lengths, terrain, and comfort levels, so it's your call on how tough or long you day is. There could be a couple more signposts and blazes, but it doesn't ruin the day or anything.

The Southside trail is paved for the first 1/4 of the trail. Then it turns into gravel for a bit and then into dirt. Good for a short hike with a stroller! .5 mile in and a .5 mile out. The park has a huge playground as well.

I've gone hiking here dozens of times now and I'm pleased to always be finding new trails. There are trails that aren't even on their maps but I love finding them. It's also great for bringing kids along if they're about 5 or up.

The trails are easy but not very well marked. It gets confusing in some parts to the point where you're thankful you aren't deeper in nature and in a position to get truly lost.

Easy trail. Perfect for those w kids looking for a "starter" trail.

Nice trails, well maintained and good for runs or walks. These trails are definitely on the easy side and I usually don't see a whole lot of people so it's relaxing. Make your way back to the back woods trail, there is some history back there...

Nice trail around the university. Little off trails and well graveled/groomed.

Very scenic & relaxing. Felt like you were in a far off forest despite being close to the city. My only critique is that the loop wasnt marked too well & it was semi difficult knowing where we were. Im sure a 2nd visit would help to understand the trail better.

This park was an easy and pretty way to get away from the city and suburban life.
