Good mix of paved and unpaved trails available. I choose unpaved to be more of a hike. Still sole xc skiing snow patches melting but they can easily be walked around or over.

Not a hiking trail. More of a primitive road. How this can be called moderate is beyond me. Very pretty area, but anyone planning to hike will be severely disappointed.

Trails were ok except where it crosses the ski path. The ski traffic is very fast with very heavy traffic. Difficult to crass with the kids.

Be aware some trails not accessible due to ski season. Southern 1/2 is open. I’d imagine with more snow less would be available for walking. The part we walked was enjoyable. Northern part of the park has some gentle hills.

Awesome hike. Some moderate elevation changes. Early winter so there was some snow on some of the paths from the snow machines. Gorgeous views.

Just a couple muddy spots but overall great conditions. There is a part of the path closed due to flooding, but there are plenty of trails to explore.

HikingBugsGreat!

moderate in difficulty in some areas but mostly fairly easy terrain. I definitely recommend using the GPS map if you want to stick to this particular trail. there are several places where multiple trails cross paths and it is unclear which direction you should take without looking at the map... but only if you are looking to stick to one particular trail. The trails are not clearly marked as to which direction to go to stick with a specific loop. but the paths themselves are cleared and easy to follow.

RunningGreat!Off trail

Great location and great amount and variety of locations and trails to explore. The far north end of the park is great for trail running, with a trail to the giant ski jump and a ridge along the top of the ski hills. There’s a prairie area behind that which is fun to loop. There’s dirt, grass, paved, and wood chipped pathways. South of those is a large paved path system that bikers use that can get busier but is still enjoyable. The flooded area along Goose Nest Pond now has an elevated wood bridge that looked like they were finishing up this week. There are more grass paths in the middle section of the park, mostly near the 94th street entrance on the east. Those can take you to Hyland lake in the south part. It can be confusing at first but it’s fun to create routes once you figure it out. Lots of places to explore, so it’s worth checking out.
