The main trail around the park is paved and sometimes exposed to full sun. We preferred the single track trails that were 90% shade. it was 80 degrees and high humidity when we started. Stay hydrated in summer. Once off the paved trail the trail junctions are not very well described on the signs. All Trails was invaluable except when the GPS was weak or nonexistent due to the tree canopy. The trail was clear and well travelled although we didn't see anyone else off the paved trail. We will be back since we only covered a few of the trails.

Nice views. Lots of spider webs and bugs. Trails are barely marked. Hard to enjoy when constantly trying to navigate and battle spider webs.

Paved trail is beautiful and peaceful, the mountain bike trail is at least moderate with plenty of obstacles and a few streams to cross.

A little muddy in some areas. Otherwise, it was perfect for my 4 and 7 year old. Not too long. Lots of places to rest. Pretty scenery. We all enjoyed it and will definitely be going back.

I hiked the wooded trail on Wednesday, 3/25, my 2nd time in a week and I enjoyed it immensely. Unfortunately, the wooded portion seemed to be designed to cross Kill Creek which was running too much water to cross, so had to take the paved portion back to the parking lot.

It was a little muddy because it rained 2 days before. Couple of creeks didn’t have bridges to walking across so you might prepare to get your feet wet. Other than that beautiful and quite.

Love the paved portions of this trail for easy - long flat stroll with an older dog - if you park at far south end at 135th street - makes for a nice long walk

For a moderate trail this one is mostly flat. A lot of rocks on the paths. Single wide in many areas. Only about 1/4 mile of paved trail. Anticipated more paved road knowing this lake and park but happy to find out it’s an actual hike. Not marked good at all. Required the app to get me through it and still got off trail multiple times due to the crossing of other trails. Look forward to hiking the others.

Nice park but the trails were not marked well. However, we found our way using the app. The lake was really cool.

Great paved trails with no traffic. Multiple connectors so you can make your own length. I will be back soon!
