Not worth it. Not taken care of. Super rocky & there are no signs!

Make sure you check yourself for ticks after your hike. Enjoyed crossing the creek to continue onto the chosen off road trail path.

There is a paved path there which is nice. But if you take the dirt trails through the woods - it's beautiful. We go here often and rarely see anyone on the dirt trails. It's beautiful. I agree with the comments on the bugs - lots of ticks. But there is a lot of tall grass here, so that's to be expected.

Nice hiking, if you take care to look out for the paths. Theres a long, paved route with off-road paths along it: you'll have to look for the signs and then follow them.

The trails themselves are not marked, but they're very clear for anyone hiking or mountain biking. I went in a nice day in March and although the park itself was busy, we did not see anyone on the trails. Others have complained about bugs, and we did have a couple ticks despite it being so early in the season. It's the woods, though.

Nice scenic hike with a few creek crossings. Saw a couple deer along the way. Trail is mostly flat with just a few elevation changes.
