Nice trail, groomed and easy. No pets allowed at this park. Few bugs past the marsh but overall not bad.

the map is wrong for parking. off of 229th there is a sign that will bring you to the right place. the trail is nice, needs to be maintained a little better at the end. a few snakes, lots of birds and dragonflies. and ticks... definitely ticks.

Great trail along the beautiful Fish Lake. There is a buffalo path that says it’s only open on Saturdays. We’ll go back soon.

Great hike that loops fish lake. Multi different ecosystems including bison area, prairie, oak savannah, beaver habitat, wet lands, lake and more! Trail gets a little muddy in a few areas and has multi boardwalks threw the wetlands. Abundant wildlife and scenery! Great hike year round. To complete the loop must walk next to the road for .5 of a mile but didn’t mind because of the lake view.

Great trail. A few wet areas further into the trail. Wear good shoes. We saw a lot of wildlife and nature. There were a lot of turtles, red squirrels, swans, a lot of birds, geese, snakes. We walked to the left once we got to the lake to almost the end of the trail and back. It’s almost 2 miles to the end and then 2 miles back.

First to Review

Trail was a little icy and wet, but this is a pretty trail. If you only do the trail to the left and back to the parking lot it is 4 miles. About 1 mile in watch for the numerous trees cut down by the beavers. Flat and easy walk.
