HikingGreat!

Really nice park. We started trying to follow the orange trail, but got a little messed up, so we just did our own path.

Walking

it is very pretty once you find the trails in the woods. The map it gave me here did not have a marked trail, it was very difficult to navigate. Luckily I had the time to maneuver around for a bit. Probably busy during bike season tho.

Wonderful walk in the woods. The trail switches back and forth so you can see other parts of the trail which can be confusing. I took a picture of the map before I left and could place the trail marker numbers to be sure where I was. Thanks for all the hard work with the markers. It wasn’t very difficult but I enjoyed the orange trail very much.

Starts at park entrance near soccer fields, as opposed to all the other trails that start at Stubnitz Center and are very well marked. This Outer Loop Trail is not marked and is kind of boring, loops around disc golf course. No idea why it is ranked moderate. Does take you along the river, and I did see several small groups of deer, but not a trail I’d wander again. Recommend Red Trail at Heritage Park, pick up at Stubnitz Center Markers 1-11. Runs concurrent with Orange Trail Markers 1-33 if you want a longer hike (8 miles for Orange Trail, Red Trail is 3 miles). 4/8/2018

This is not a “marked trail” like other ones in the park are, and not sure why it was marked moderate. Marked trails start at Stubnitz Center, this one is at entrance of park by the Free School, and takes you past the soccer fields and down thru the disc golf course. It does run along the river, but mostly just a grassy area once you pass the front end of course. I did see a couple groups of 3 deer and loner by the river which was nice. River is running high and grassy area along back was wet and water covered - got a couple soakers. Not the trail I had hoped it was, I recommend going to Stubnitz Center and picking one of those. Red and Orange run together from marker 1-11, the red drops you back at parking area, about 3 miles total. Tried the rest of Orange today at stop 11, but trail too muddy and I was slipping too much. Orange ends at marker 33, just over 8 miles from 1-33.

I played frisbee golf at this park which crossed the trails at times. The trails were well marked, but at times not too wide. Didn't see restrooms in area.

Nice trail for either biking or walking/running good parking. Do not get the direction to the park from all trails Google map heritage park instead

I have only ever visited the park since the trail markers have been redone and they are extremely easy to follow and well marked. The various lengths of the trails make the park great for all skill levels and abilities. Honestly, I love coming here! The trails are narrow, but very serene. You'll see a bit of wildlife (squirrels, chipmunks, deer, birds). Great for a casual stroll or can be made into a pretty great workout. Two-thumbs up!

Regularly hike Heritage Park with my faithful dog. Leash rules apply as well as picking up after your canine (leave no trace!). The park offers a variety of settings. Wooded, open meadows, hills, river (creek), low wet lands, tall grass fields, parking lots, sports fields (soccer and ball diamonds), sheltered picnic area, local history (FreeSoil School), educational (Stubnitz Center), children's play area, disc golf course, "Bits and Pieces" remote airplane field and hill for winter sledding. When the snow is deep the snowshoes come out. Typically I hike the park during the weekday so I can hike with my dog off the lead though I always carry her leash with me and put the lead on when I see other dogs. Most of the trails, though not well marked, are for Mountain biking as well as hiking. A somewhat complete trail map of the park can be found in the helpful link.

As part of the 4 person volunteer mtn bike group that maintains these trails, I'd like to tell you all that we do the best we can and we've heard your complaints. While the city isn't able to help us with trail work(read budget issues), they were able to secure a grant to purchase trail signage material. So, as of today, we have 5 separately colored/numbers loop. The shortest at .5mi and the longest at 9mi, with a total of 113 sign posts! I personally have over 125hrs of trail work in this year already to make this project happen. Do yourself, and us, a favor and give Heritage another try. I think you'll be glad you did.

love coming here! I bring my dog all the time and she loves it. We rarely ever cross paths with other hikers so that makes me feel comfortable enough to let her off the leash so she can explore.

Fun trail. Combination of sand and hard pack. Some areas are very narrow to the point of not much wider than the handlebars on the bike. Never did find the narrow bridge crossings. Poorly marked.

Rode this trail today, it was a fun but the trails are poorly marked and maintained, me and my brother got turned around a couple times and the obstacles are falling apart and really sketch. All in all its a fun trail that has a lot of potential just need maintenance.

Single track that runs around and through a disc golf course. Very poorly marked and maintained trail. Never did find an actual "loop" of any sort...found a few really short sections of flow with some baby skinnies and some whoops that I decided to hit several times. Probably won't come back to this one...

Heritage park MTB trial is primarily is single tract with several loops. Trial is quite narrow in some sections. Trial runs mostly thru dense forest with many short climbs and downhill. There are many obstacles of varying degrees of difficulty. Harder obstacles give you an alternate path to avoid. Trial is not very well marked and I took the same loops more than once. This is a fun trial that you can make as difficult and as technical as you want.
