Has gotten a lot better with addition of better signs marking trails in last couple years (as well as maps of trails). Very happy hiking around with small kids 2-7. Saw group of deer, turtles, and trees felled by beavers. Passed by less than a dozen bikers on a gorgeous 60 degree day in early February.

We did part of the park, starting out on the Melton Lake Greenway, connecting with Saddle, to middle, then took Lake road back to the beginning again. That part took us about 1 1/2 hours, with our small dog, but he loved it! I must say, the trails were marked VERY well, with maps in places even. Very impressed. We will go back and do a different portion next time. :)

Pretty good trail overall. Seen several deer while we were hiking too, which was pretty cool.

I only hiked paved part of trail so scenery didn't change much in the 2.5 miles I did. This section is well suited as a bike trail.

Very pretty, short hike.

Always feel safe even when I am alone. This track leads to Ezra Park with woodsy trails and to Haw Ridge with more woodsy trails next to the lake. Beautiful in early morning.

Perfect for when I don't want to drive too far from home. I always see deer. If you do not like bugs or Spider webs save this for winter. offers many mini trails. just adorable.

Multiple options for hikers looking for a casual hike to the cardiac workout that comes with elevation climb. Trails are well marked and better yet there is a rope climb and a bell to ring at the top on the West Slope.

Started at the very end and went until we got to the boat ramp. Had 3 kids 12, 7, 4 with us but 4 yr old did most of the trail in the trailer bc there was a few steep hills to climb. it is close to the road on some of the trail but gets more scenic and quiet near the near the small marsh and down to the boat ramp. my gps read about 11 miles from beginning and back. theres a small park on the trail with nice picnic areas and also hiking along the route. not to many bathrooms so make sure to go at the park.

I hiked this 4-9-18. Some yellow trillium had started booming along with some other flowers, and there were several flowers budding.
I would call it a moderate trail, as there are a lot of rocks and some hilly areas. I wouldn’t recommend hiking it after a rain. There is a good bit of mud and the rocks are slippery.

Lots of good trail options.

Easy walk, great for dogs on leash.

Well maintained and cool year round... too close to the road.

Good walk that’s close to home. Not too much to see.

Sea ticks everywhere and no amount of bug repellent helps. You will be covered. I rode home in underwear after stripping my kids. I'm not sure if all the ticks are worth a decent hike.

These are great trails, but a lot of them are only for fairly experienced mountain bikers. (Hikers etc. can do any of them)These trails are extremely technical due to a lot of roots and rocks. There are also some small drops. The trails are a lot of fun and I highly recommend them.

This is one of my favorite Greenways not to crowded with some up hill sections to get your heart pumping and good parking

We love to do this trail with our kids, easy paved walk with public bathrooms at the main parking lot by the rowing center. If you start at the last parking lot on Melton Lake Dr before you hit Edgemoor it has a nice walkway that goes out with lake on one side and marsh area on the other.

This is a great Greenway all paved but some boardwalk along the river, Has access to Haw Ridge mountain bike trails and another Greenway about mid way.

Beautiful views when you're walking by the water (Lake Trail). The water was a gorgeous blue green. Lovely in winter

Good trails! Variety of difficulty ranging from easy to hard. I covered about 7 miles and didn't get to all of the trails. It would be a lot of fun on a bike so I'll have to try that next time.
