Nice hike for the whole family. You'll meander through the woods with views of the pond along the way. The trail-head was easy to find, right off the parking lot at the Park Headquarters.

Great trail to walk with kids and dogs. Could be better marked but otherwise a scenic trail.

Easy trail, with very little elevation change. A few exposed roots to look out for, but overall well maintained and marked. Hiked with 4 year old son and 10 year old dachshund. We all made it with ease in about an hour.

Plenty of paves bike path winding through the woods. Not much in the way of views or destinations but, a good workout.

I highly recommend Curlew pond for camping. The Bentley Loop is nearby and is a nice, easy hike that is great for dogs.

Great flat land walking trails, or trails for bikes. Many ponds for kayaking and beautiful foliage in the fall.

There are multiple ponds to camp on, but I think Curlew Pond is the best (the BEST swimming and fishing). $12 a night for a site. No alcohol (ahem, Solo cups if you are 21 and older). Everyone camping MUST have an ID with them to register. Forgot something? Dave's Liquors down the street acts as the local general store (they sell tarps, rope, food, odds n' ends). I love this place!

Trails great for walking, cross-country running, or mountain biking. I've been visiting Myle Standish State Forest ever since I was a kid. I have always found something new to do there.
