Seriously confusing system of markers and many trails are unmarked or the markers are missing or worn off. The trails are clear and maintained well. The biking and equestrian paths are moderately technical for hikers and trail runners. Beautiful scenery and you’re completely surrounded on all sides by the natural world. I will absolutely come back often but only after studying the trail system and downloading it to my phone. You could easily get lost if it gets dark. There are bathrooms at trail heads and plenty of places for photo ops.

Great quick get away trail with diversity of terrain and river views. A little confusing . Really need better markers!

Nice park to walk your dog. Depending on the crowd you can get up in the woods and let your dog off leash or not. We had a lot of exposure to the river today. It was cold but sunny.

I like to run wooded trails. This is a great trail. Lots of varied hardwood forest and the yellow river. The route starts with a climb up a hill of about 125 feet elevation gain. Then the rest of the track is pretty smooth along the river edge. There are a lot of roots and stones in the trail, so you have to watch, but pretty much all trails are like that. There is less rock in trail where the trail is along the river. There are lots of trals so you can vary the route many ways. I like only about a 3 mile run so this is nice for me. It could easily be a 6 mile run. It also is a good hike if you do not run. Lots of people bring their dogs.

A great 4 miles that follows along the river quite a bit. The only negative is the trail is not marked clearly and unless you know where your going it’s easy to get lost.

Beautiful river views and nice option of wide paved paths for strollers, but I agree that the trails are poorly marked and we ended up at dead ends.

This trail is where champions train. It's a park with a large series of intertwining trails of rolling topography in a deciduous temperate forest of mixed pine/hardwood; it is easy to log large miles on soft surface for elite level runners. Bikers seem to enjoy the trails too. The park is divided into two halves by Juhan road.

well had a hard time following it cause there were so many intersections and allot of those intersections didn't have signs but other wise a pretty decent trail.

Very simple easy trail. No nice views or anything that stands out. Seems more like a spot for locals to walk their dogs or done some running

I go here all the time. It's amazing. About a mile in, if you're following the river, there's a cute beach area.

The walk along the water is nice and they have a decent playground near the trail, a good for little kids

These are nice trails but they cross themselves constantly and it's kind of easy to get turned around. They aren't super challenging or exciting but make for a nice ride closer to home.

Beautiful place. Free parking. There are so many places to hike and see the amazing wonders of nature. It's so quiet here. I think it's awesome that they have horse trails. I wish we could have seen some today!

A good place for simple, easy hiking or walking, but a great place to bring the Mountain Bike! Next time Im leaving my hikers on the rack and bringing the bike. Really good, fast single tracks throughout the park. Be careful of walkers and dogs, horses and those pesky rogue briars that cross over trails. Toilet facilities are open and clean with plenty of water. For what it is, it is great, I am more of a technical challenge hiker, but I still like this for Mountain Bikes. River was literally yellow, and sadly to say, alot of rubbish and debris floating along.

Nice place for running. Not very much incline though. Lot's of trails to keep you going. Watch out for mountain bikers and horses on the trials.
