Great little gem in Frankfort. The nature views and waterfall are beautiful. We can only imagine what everything looks like after a good rain. Very well kept trails, nice restroom and picnic areas. Trails have sitting spots so those who are not as athletic can take breaks and just take in nature. We will be going back soon

I wish I would have known there were so many trails. I would have allowed more time. Also, I was confused about Sky Trail, I couldn't find it.

This was our third time to hike around this fabulous city park. It has challenging ascents and descents. It is pretty well marked, but we did accidentally enter the 3D Archery trails-not at the sign-that's where we exited. Our pictures show and alligator-part of the 3D scenario! Fortunately, no one was there and they only aim down marked trails-so there shouldn't be danger. But it was a bit uncomfortable! Once you reach the top, there are some nice views of North Frankfort and the Capitol as well as historical markers. There are also Port-a-potties! Bonus!
We like to go about 5 miles-we never hit that on our 3 separate hikes, but the ascent helped make up for shorter distances. There are some slippery places due to recent rain. Best to wear Roger hiking shoes on the trails. We also used our poles-but younger people seemed fine. We also saw more waterfalls this last time due to heavy rains 2 days before. No blackberries in the Blackberry Meadows (trail). Oh well, it was still a fun hike.

There are quite a few trails here. Took a 3 year old and carried a 3 month old. It was great but the 3 year old ended up being carried quite a bit too.

This would be nice for a daily place to take a quick walk in the woods. I would rate the trail as easy. We saw 2 copperheads while there.

Favorite place to visit for walking, hiking, spending time with family, or even walking the furkids.
Note: Holly Trail leads to other amazing fun trails and water scenery
This place is actually called and found on GPS as Cove Springs
