Wish we could have seen it. It’s completely shut down and we couldn’t find a way to even park and walk to the trail unfortunately.

Half of Hodges Gardens is already inaccessible while they're in the process of closing down completely. It was nice to walk around the other half, but that area is no longer as well maintained as it used to be.

Mostly paved wouldnt exactly call it a trail, but make no mistake this place was beautiful and is more than worth checking out.

Flowers are pretty, trails extremely overgrown. The park ranger we talked to was a first class A-hole. There were some locals here wearing rotary club vests, doing some kind of high school running event that were very rude as well. Maybe it's just the area.

Beautiful gardens and man made paths. Geese, duck, bird, deer. Several trails were closed due to forestry burn. Long lief pine trail was overgrown. Wild azalea trail wasnt marked well either as we ended up on a closed path with dangerous bridge. will try again in the spring

Best trail by far I have been to. We went a little off trail bc we heard water and discovered a 7-8ft waterfall. All of the flowers, campsites, canoe renting, etc was available. Strongly recommend to take a day out and discover this place

I ran by the lake for a while and it was nice. When I ran some of the trails in the woods i got turned around because of trail closures. This could have been marked better.
