There is a paved and unpaved trail. I did the unpaved. It was kinda boring. Only 1 view of the lake. It was a mix of tree shade and open area. I went during midday to lower the insects. The highlight was walking past a horse barn. It’s a decent urban trail. Had a rabbit, chipmunk, and plenty of birds. I could hear road noise about a mile either side of the parking area. Other that that it was a peaceful hike. Probably better in the autumn to see the tree colors.

Great trail to bike on. Hiking not so much. It’s quite buggy if you’re walking, but shouldn’t be a problem when going at faster speeds. Saw a baby turtle and lots of interesting bugs. It was hot so we turned around part way though the loop.

I enjoyed parts of this trail, but prefer more shade. I would not do it again. However, I would consider snowshoeing the Homestead trail.

Decent trail. In good condition. I prefer more wooded trails and would not do this one again.

We biked this trail today. Beautiful area around the lake though this time of year to many leaves to see the lake. Well maintained trail. Several elevation changes.

one of the best park ( independence park) and best trail surrounding plymouth, minnetonka, maple plain area. Best place to experience wilderness in an urban area.
