1st time here, which I got here at 545, so close to dusk. very clean! wide paths and many trails to choose from, so you can make it as short or as long as you want. more walking than hiking, but enjoyable- especially with the foliage. I truly enjoyed myself here! I needed a reprieve and quiet time to walk and relax. this was the place. Ill definitely be back!

Nature tripsBugsGreat!

I absolutely love these trails. They're clean and accessible. Great for casual hikes with little to no incline. Gets very buggy in the woods however, be prepared!

Trails were well marked but I quickly lost GPS service so it was difficult to know where we were ultimately heading. Beautiful park, though, we will go back for sure.

Really great hike! Most trails were very well labeled. The purple trail has a lot of roots so be careful. But overall, really great. Has abandoned barns, open greenery, bird watchers, swimming for the doggo. Highly recommend but bring a sweat rag and bug spray!

This is a nice piece of land with forests, fields, and a bog. Not too much traffic on the trails but we went after 3pm. Elevation wasn’t challenging so it made for a nice easy walk. The river views were great and there were a few spots where you could walk down and chill at the river’s edge.

Great hike; easy to navigate, rained recently yet easy to cross muddy areas. Very few people off of the beaten path. Will do again.

I've been coming here since I was very young. all the trails are beautiful and there's so many you'll always find a new spot. oil city is cool! you can get right to the river in multiple locations!
