Super easy loop. Let your toddler lead the way and watch the magic unfold. Also a great place to ice-skate in the winter.

Nice local trail to walk with a good scenic view but worried about the crowd that frequents the park, lots of beer bottles/alcohol bottles littered everywhere.

Short loop trail to walk my dog. Seen few people. Nice woodland atmosphere. I have paddled the pond for years. I have harvested wild rice and duck potatoes in the fall as well. I enjoy the area very much.

I recorded my trail but was concerned at first when it didn’t match on the map- it is fine. Very quick but nice and most is okay but on the second side of the road in the beginning lots of tall grass/plants.

This Alltrails site does not reflect recent new trails and major improvements to the park. See for updated information. A short half-mile loop trail is well-maintained and enjoyable with streams, historic sites, and more.

Free access to pond for fishing, kayaking, and canoeing. It was very buggy in July. Otherwise, lots of wildlife and birds. Very enjoyable.
