10–2-18. Nice hike, lots of awesome scenery! We managed to walk 6.5 miles on the trails, only because I took a wrong turn and we were kind of lost for a few minutes!
To the young couple who pointed me in the right direction, a very sincere THANK YOU goes out to them for setting me in the right direction! (Lady with the big blue Pit)
I arrived after the gate keeper left, so I didn’t have to pay the small fee.

Not sure why this was rated as moderate. Any easier and it would be paved. Regardless, still a nice get-away and an enjoyable time.

This is a wonderful place for a day hike (or longer if you want... camping is available). Today was an absolutely beautiful day. Peaceful, birds chirping, river flowing, frogs singing, breeze blowing. I saw someone chilling in a hammock with a book (brilliant). It is $6 for a day pass to get into the park. Worth it if you ask me. :) The trails are very well marked and trail maps available at several locations.

Nice trail. Peaceful loop starting along the Chippewa River. One fairly strenuous hill.

Such a great trail. Dog are allowed! There is a small fee. Not alot of people even on Sunday. There's a big trail system to enjoy.

Great wide paths with multiple types of bridges to explore (swinging, modern, and a covered bridge), great spots to sit along the river.

My kids and I enjoyed this park. We have not hiked the whole thing as we had to be somewhere else but it was beautiful, well marked, had lovely spots to sit by the river and even picnic. Our favorite part is the bridges! They are so awesome! We already plan on going back this week!

For mountain bikers, avoid. All trails are smooth two lane, and the trails are poorly marked, you come to many intersections that aren't marked, and it was very tough to find my way out.
