There are 8.5 miles of blazed trails in the 183-acre park, as well as a picnic pavilion, toilet facilities, and a swimming beach. A section of the Hop River trail passes threw the park. Loop around the pond and hike out into the park by going to the left. To the right of the pond there is a water fall and trail that leads up to the Hop river Trail. Cross it and continue to hike up to view the valley from two look out points.

I love this trail it's moderate in difficulty. It has a beautiful path along stream with incredible tree coverage, flowers and all sorts of interesting insects and critters along the way. There are a lot of fallen trees, stonewalls and small wooden foot bridges. It is not too crowded in the morning and afternoon and brings you far back enough in the forest that all external city sounds are absent.

This was great trail to walk with my little ones. We had to backtrack at one point as we were on the blue yellow trail and then on the red trail to end back at the lake. There are some climbs and it was an overall great hike.

Short hike, the trail is listed as moderate but it's not, its very easy, rather flat, wide trail, but lots of roots and some muddy patches. ran it with my dog, it was nice following the creek, but be careful of all the break off trails, stay on the blue and yellow marked trail(if you are leaving the parking lot and head to the right across the bridge) until on your way back you'll notice it splits off to the right and a red marked trail continues to the left. go down the red marked trail to make the full circle. I enjoyed it, it would make a nice day walk as well, just to get out and relax.

Love this place. We go hiking with our kids 6 and 8 year old, we hiked here twice we loved it so much. The first time we took the blue/yellow trail which was moderate and second time we did the yellow/blue trail to the red trail which was much easier but beautiful.
