Great place to take your dog and hike. I only wish there was more of it. The trail are well maintained and scenic too.

Beautiful lake to hike around but I didn't find the trails to be particularly well marked. Advise taking a look on line to see the full layout of this park before heading over.

This park was perfect on an October afternoon. Likes of trails to explore and beautiful views. I could (and did) spend hours there.

It's easy and fun for family and there is a cool waterfall where you can climb the big rocks all the way to the top! But your not allowed to go in any water or rivers

It was a fun, easy hike. A great one to do with family. I remember going to piney run when I was very young with family and friends, we would hike probably 1 mile (the distance I am not certain) to a pine forest where we made forts out of fallen branches. It was a great time and seemed almost magical back then. I highly suggest it.

Nice easy hike for all. Bush trails big clean and opportunities to do other activities like kayak, canoe and fish

Enjoyable walk on the trails but wasn't marked very well and upkeep seemed a bit poor for the trails. However, those two complaints are most likely if not definitely the result of the park not being fully open for the year.
