Explore the prairies, forests and wetlands, camp or enjoy a swim after an afternoon of fishing, hiking or participating in any of the other activities at F.W. Kent Park. The hiking trails feature grassed and crushed rock surfaces run through Kent Park's many native communities. The crushed rock trail around the lake provides anglers with access to the entire shoreline. In the winter some of the trails can be used for cross country skiing. Seven historic country road bridges have been relocated to Kent Park and utilized on the trail around the 27-acre lake.

The trails were short loops, no varying terrain. Very easy and family friendly, if that's what you are looking for. It wasn't what I was looking for.

Beautiful area! The trails wind all around the park with many different scenes and areas. The trails are not always marked so you may want to take a nap.
