Half the trails are closed due to flooding and the rest are overgrown, muddy, or washed out. Recommend going somewhere else unless you already live in the area and don’t mind a short walk through the woods.

Nice quite nature walk. You can still see the house from the neighborhood. There is only a dirt path. It’s not paved. I liked that it wasn’t very secluded.

Trail’s in great shape, as of mid-November. Flat, not challenging. But a nice nature preserve with tree coverage.

Nice short trail. However, there is no point on the trail where you are unable to see or hear traffic, houses, trains, etc. It is nice though if you only have an hour and live nearby.

The trail is great for what it is, a sliver of nature surrounded by urbanization. Trail is flat, easy to follow, and easy to hike. Currently the park is doing some select timber harvesting so you will encounter work crews and controlled brush fires. Overall great quick winter hike.

Beautiful location with plenty of parking. I saw three white tailed deer on my hike. The trails are not clearly marked. I got lost and had to call the office, thankfully someone was there to help me. Overall it’s beautiful but you must bring a Compass and Phone with you!
