Great trail to hike on in Lexington. Lots of different paths to take and plenty of creek beds.

Cute, short trail to get out of the hustle and bustle of Lexington for a bit. Parts of the trail were really muddy. The trail is pretty lacking in signage or markings so this could either be a fun or a frustrating trail depending on how much you like puzzles! Some parts of the trail were also closed off, which contributed to some confusion.

very confusing even when using the app, trails are very poorly marked, but fun, easy walk.

One of my fitness goals is to visit every single park in Lexington in 2020. Did you know there are 88! Today we went to Veterans Park. 4.7 miles of trails, a creek and vast open spaces. The options are great: paved, trails and nice grassy open spaces. I had no idea this gem offered so much! The dogs loves it!

Round about the trail 2x. Bike/jog trail was too muddy & signs asked not to use to prevent erosion. Some different fruit, lots of walnuts and that 300+ oak wow!

This has been such a beautiful gem to me this summer but they have gone through and chopped so many wild flowers, trees and shrubs inside this trail that it no longer feels likes like a little magical forest anymore. They are taking a II much of the nature aspect away from the park. Sad.

Not a fan compared to all the other wonderful running trails around the greater Lexington area. Not well marked and too many times did I take a turn and it dead ended somewhere (which as you know means you have to turn around and lose all the time and area covered backtracking to where you took that turn). For someone trying to get a good trail run in and enjoy the experience, I found this trail to be more frustrating and confusing than enjoyable.

One of my favorite places to run since I’ve moved here! I can just run for as long as I want and if I ever have anything come up where I have to leave there are many outlets back to the main circuit to get back quickly

The trail was not clearly marked in the beginning, we found ourself walking the disc golf course on accident. Other a good trail for the location (in the middle of the city). We will definitely be back!

A little hidden Oasis! It's a close place right here in Lexington KY to take a walk, run, or ride a bike. It's a good time to go alone or take the family.

Good outing with the family (kids ages 6 - 14). Fairly busy area (walkers, mountain bikers, frisbee golf, etc.), but was to be expected. Back part of the trail was much quieter.

This is a great, relatively flat trail to run. Not busy in the daytime, but slammed after work hours.

Awesome trail but not well marked but every trail comes back to the place you started so you can’t get lost

Really great trail but not well marked. Lots of small side trails that get a little confusing. Brought my dog and she had a lot of fun in the water! Will be back for sure.

Miles of great trails to run and my dog loves wading in the creek to cool down after! Only con is there are a lot of side trails/cut thrus and the trail is not well marked off the back of the park, so have a good sense of direction!

Would go back just a little easy!! Might have been better if wasn't so dry. More like a 3.5. 3 would be to low but 4 to high!! Worth a visit!!
