It’s a great 1 hour walk that’s pretty easy. The views from the lake are phenomenal, we’re super lucky to have this gem in Eagan.

Nice easy run. Through marshes and wood. Some dirt path and some wood pathways.

This was a fun trail. I went with my children, ages 15, 11, 7 and 4. It took us two hours to complete the loop. We took a couple short breaks and a leisurely pace. The trails were well maintained and well marked. Some parts were muddy but easy to navigate around. We'll definitely come back again.

My go-to trail for convenience, scenery and ease. Lake-side most of the trail. Expect some mud in the spring and after rainfalls, but not too bad.

My wife and I spotted a Scarlet Tangier this past weekend. Rare for this area. Beautiful with lots of wildlife. Don't go there as often as we used to. Nothing against horse's (were animal lovers) but they seem to be taking the park over. Just like Crow Hassen.

90% hard pack around Voyager (Northern and Southern). Jensen lake trail was about 30% mud. Overall thought: get out and take the slop in stride.

Great trail system. BUT I wouldn't describe what I did was a hard trail. I did get to a moderate level of hiking. This might be my view coming from Utah and having different expectations.

Best marked trail system I have ever been on. I enjoyed a 6 mile run, looping around beautiful ponds and lakes. Lots of runners and less hikers. Very well maintained trails, maps at every intersection, and great bathrooms.

Pretty good place to sweat, fish, hike. Can you find the wonky bridge? In Eagan.

Pet owners beware. Very serious brown tick problem, even if your pet is prescription treated prior to visit. I even had to remove some ticks from myself. Beautiful & lovely otherwise but not worth the clean up hassle for us & my dog.
