Nice wide paths since this is a Nordic ski trail. Good amount of hills and seems more geared towards mountain biking but saw a few people hiking the trails as well. Just keep an eye out for mountain bikers when paths cross.

We hiked in the southern portion of the park and it was absolutely lovely. Nice elevation changes and shifts in landscape. This is a hidden gem just off 94

A very doable get away with nice amounts of elevation changes. In early spring lots of Mallard ducks and the sounds of frogs. A little bit muddy, but easy to work around.

beautiful and interesting trail. some off trail hills for exploring is an added bonus. crowded on Sunday due to our unique Clovid situation. I love it.

Awesome and interesting trail, especially if you detour on some of the ski trails. Right now it’s super icy and muddy in some parts but not enough to make it not worth it. Collected 3 bags worth of trash and recycling on the snow hill at the start of trail

Ah, I love running the XC ski trails (now that ski season’s done)! Some very icy/snowy patches and quite muddy in other spots. Used trail shoes, no cleats and it was 95% fine. Love the smell of the wet cedar chips. Tough hills. Pretty woods. Tons of options especially when more of the single-track dries out

Be aware of high graded slopes. I hiked between bikes trails,cross country trails and pavement make this hike enjoyable with its variability.

The trails were nice and clear. Bugs came out around 6:30 pm but that is to be expected. Did not see any moose so that was disappointing.
