I recently went on a weekday morning and did have to pay $5 entrance fee. I was walking with my grandpup, and I must say there was a LOT of poison ivy he would “visit” on the trail itself - not just on the sides. Perimeter trail is pretty wide for the most part, except at certain part of west trail in prairie it had not been mown in a long time! The map provided by the park should have an inset of the smaller “nature trails” in more detail. That part is a little confusing - several trails are simply called “nature trail,” they are not numbered or marked very well - and some paths are dead ends.

The trails are okay, not necessarily the best maintained, but still passable. The people who said they had to pay are in the minority, as the park is free 99% of the time.

Horse damage, and waste, is a rare problem.

This isn't the most scenic trail but it is worth hiking if you are in the area. It's only for horseback or hiking. The only time you'd pay to enter Stoney Run is on weekends in the summer. 99% of the year it's free to visit.

The perimeter Trail is a moderately flat trail with some muddy sections and some horse damage. the trail is not maintained all that well in every area. overall this park is okay but I'm not quite sure why they charge to use this park. I would not recommend this Trail for mountain bikers, but for hikers and runners it is okay. The bugs can be a bit heavy especially on the western areas of the trail. There is a nice farm field overlook/ view on the far south western edge of the perimeter trail. Overall the perimeter trail is better suited for horses.
