Really great trail! We did majority Otter Creek Trail (OCT) and cut back on the Red Cedar Trail (RCT). $3/person. They gave us a really good trail map at the entrance, and I thought all the trails were marked pretty well. First half of the hike was easy, second half moderate. Walked through LOTS of spider webs, which was a little annoying. You are never too far from roads/camping. Nice views. We did 3.84 miles in all, took almost 2 hours. Dogs loved it. A few horses on the RCT trail, so if you're just hiking, it's probably best to stay on the No Horses trails to avoid mud and poop.

So much to do and look at. It's only $3 for day use and we spent approximately 6 hours exploring here. Caves, streams, wildlife, rivers, you name it. Will be going back here real soon.

Terribly marked trails. Someone has pulled up the majority of the trail markers. There are no blazes. it had rained most the day before making the trails thick with mud. Never made it to the river. Very disappointing. Could hear the people camping at all times, so no solitude.

Beautiful trail! We followed the OCT trail markers, but it seemed longer than 4 miles. We didn't have a tracker on, so could be wrong, but experience tells us it was longer, so be prepared for a long hike! Took us about 4 hours... it was worth it though. Lots of wildlife and views. Also would rate this as hard, not moderate, just because of the hills.

This is a YMCA park. It is closed on Monday and Tuesday. There is also a fee to enter the park. The park was closed the day we wanted to hike. Will rate later.

Wonderful trail though admittedly trail markers can be somewhat hard to spot.
