Great trail and beautiful scenery! My dog loved it!

Followed trillium to whispering pines to wetlands to red cherry. Accidentally closed the app for a portion of trillium which was disappointing. But the trails were beautifully maintained.

Good little ride today. Nothing special. There are holes in the trails where standing water is. I wasn’t too concerned with them. The exposed tree roots are a little more bumpy than I would have like since I was on a hybrid bike. Loud from the highway just as everyone else has commenters. Pine needles everywhere on the twirls!!)$

Wonderful flat wide clear clean trail. Tons of wildlife to see all kinds of turtles fish and a white egret. There was an observation tower with built in binoculars too! I want to go again. Highly recommend. There is one part of the path where you can hear the highway but what can you do...Just another example of people encroaching on animals space.

Cool trail on a small strip of land between 2 lakes. A few nice stopping points for water scenery. Saw a lot of ducks and birds.

Basic small trail with some good turns. Good for a quick walk in and out of the woods.

A well maintained easy enjoyable trail. Lots of people walking their dogs.

A pleasantly calm and beautiful scenery for all types of people.

This trail is named Lake Trail

Well maintained trail with lots of opportunities for off-shoots. Completed this path and a few others but lots in the park.

No ducks this time. Trail fairly maintained. Pay attention to signs about canebrake rattlesnakes.

Not bad except for the highway being right next to you.

The trail was easy to follow and pretty flat. There were lake views and was mostly wooded. I gave it 3 stars for several reasons. It was crowded and the people did not seem friendly. I prefer more rural trails. Most of the trail is next to a very busy and loud highway. There’s also a lot of loud overhead jet noise. The other side of the trail backs up to peoples homes. And there are apparently rattle snakes although I didn’t see any. I wasn’t aware we even had rattle snakes in this area. It was a nice length though. They did have a dog park which was empty but I wouldn’t use it based on the unfriendliness of the people there. I don’t think we’ll be doing this one again.

Excellent lunch time run - or if you are pressed for time and "gotta get some miles in". easy going surfaces.

It was hard for to find a map of the park. I actually got lost and had to pull up my all trails app to find someone else's trail gps they did.... after I finally found it, it was a pretty run... there are a lot of roots on some parts though...

Can be run in less than half an hour. Walks can take an hour or more. Scenery is nice for a majority of the way. For about a quarter of a mile, you get close enough to the highway to catch a whiff of the exhaust produced by the cars. This messes with my breathing. Despite this, I still chose this as my preferred trail and run it every day after work!

Great easy trail. Saw lots of wildlife. Trail is a little load along the road sections, but I would definitely walk it again.

Easy path, even with little kids. Scenery by the lake is great with lots of turtles and ducks for young ones to watch.

We were able to push our double stroller along this trail- it was bumpy at times, but doable. A good portion of the path runs alongside the highway and is so incredibly loud, my husband and I couldn't hear each other and had to shout at one another- we were SO glad when that stretch finally ended. Because of that, we probably will not do it again.

This trail is a nice length and just the right amount of mixed scenery and trail type. The trail does get very wet when it rains and a few parts do not dry out...ever. There are parts that hold water and are difficult to get around. This is one of the fewer traveled trails so it has areas that have higher grass and during slow times you may not run into anyone. In the summer it is mostly shaded with a few stretches in full sun. The mosquitos can be vicious due to the standing water, bring bug spray.
