Love the trails here. Well maintained and you can go short distances or longer depending on your mood. Lots of different trails.

Trail was fun, but we did almost 4 miles and much of it wasn't the mapped trail here. Very poorly marked, but much more to hike than what's shown here.

Granted, this is the first trail I've hiked on this app, I have to imagine it is pretty hard to beat. between the bird display when you get there, to the suspension bridge, to the old military training bunkers/trenches/generals cabin, this place is hard to beat, and very exhilarating to walk through. Great nature displays, there is a paved path, and dirt trails as well. If you are debating on whether or not to hike this, just do it! lol awesome place!

Love hiking this trail with my family! My son loves bullet hunting and we all love taking pictures here. The trails aren't too long and easy to get to making it perfect for kids. A lot of tree coverage provides plenty of shade on hot days but beware of mosquitoes! Use plenty of bugspray!

Great park and a fun hike. The map is incomplete at best though, lacking almost any of the trails at all. Something that is problematic when you're trying to teach your son basic map reading skills
