Decent trails when you aren't crossing streets or walking through parking lots or shelter locations to get to the next secion of the trail. Wetlands were beautiful and walking along the lake was nice. Not very rugged at all.

Nice and generally peaceful hiking trails that are moderately rugged in terms of inclines. We did trails 3, 6, 9 and then 7. The trip up to Hell's Point on trail 9 is a moderate hike and it reaches a quiet spot at the top, but you can't really see much from the overlook due to trees. (Not a complaint, just an observation.) The trip down from the point uses stairs instead of a trail. If you do trail 7, note that it is mostly open meadow, so it's best to do that early in the day rather than in the blazing sun like we did. Most of the trails other than 7 seem to offer plenty of shade, but on 7 you are much more exposed to the elements.

Hiked for 6 hours. Trails were teeming with wildlife. Wetlands were superb! Every step was beautiful. Water refill stations were a major plus! Not busy at all, well marked and maintained, many maps along the trail and all 8 people I did run into were very nice! Would recommend and even though you have to pay to get in I will definitely be going back!

Trails were hard to find at first but were a good mix of difficulty. Was a beautiful park and would definitely go back!

I was shocked that they were charging nine dollars to enter. I did not enter.
