As others have noted bring decent bug spray. I used Repel with eucalyptus (no Deet) which worked really well. Trail markings at intersections were often non existent. Got turned around several times. Pretty hard to get lost for too long though. Now that I have the lay of the land I’ll be back!

Definitely bring your bug spray because they are insane. Some trails are marked well and some aren’t. Definitely check out the red trail and see the waterfall

Nice local hike. Some questionable trail markings in some spots. Black trail is the largest and easiest. White trail is the hardest. Red trail has a small waterfall. Got in around 5 miles. Will go back

Will definitely be going back! Very well marked trail. I did black to blue to orange to red, then ended back on black. The falls were amazing.

Took my dog for a walk where she could run around on trails. Decently sized loop, but weird location. Must have bug spray! Mucky and washed out trails.

The trails were washed out in alot of places and we had to walk around huge puddles in other spots...defiently watch your step when walking as there are a lot of rocks and branches you may not see at first; defiently would consider this a moderate trail. I wish the map @ the beginning showed which trail the waterfall was on (I only knew it was the red one after reading comments on here, and we were already back to the car). Some of the trail colors are also hard to follow as their just spray painted on the trees and sometimes camouflaged into the trees. Other then that we enjoyed our time and will be going back to try to find the waterfall next time.

Great short trail! Will also be great for snowshoeing. We did black, to blue, orange, to red (the BEST...make sure you do red and pass by the waterfall), to black and it took about an hour. Good for dogs to roam and adventure as well. Nice quick, easy hike if you want to get out but don't have a lot of time.

Highly recommended! Trails are labeled easy moderate and difficult so you can choose what you'd like!

Very disappointed. The paper trail map was all but useless. The trails went every which way and were not well marked, it was buggy and not pretty at all. Parking was easy. Mostly flat around the perimeter black trail. Take some bug spray.

A bizarrely remote, wooded park in the middle of Biddeford. Feels like you are in rural northern Maine, not the metropolitan South. Scary. Passed a number of campfires with vodka bottles, hypodermic needles, and beer cans. Saw no one the entire hike, thank god. Lost cell reception and navigation was putting us in the wrong place in the middle of the hike. No trail markers, so we got lost . . . in the middle of Biddeford, no less! DO NOT DO IT.

I've been year a few times over the summer with my boyfriend to hike and we explored many wonderful trails. We just got snowshoes and came here to try them out and found numerous trails we hadn't been on before. It's surprising how big this park is and it's right in the middle of Biddeford. Love coming here for convience.

Good place to let the dogs to run around. No real peak or summit. There's a waterfall on the backside a little ways off the trail. My dog always go swimming to cool down. Definitely gets muddy during those times of years, but a nice hike none-the-less.
