Both the Prairie Loop and the Poplar Loop are paved trails that are open for hiking and biking. There are many trails (paved and unpaved) off of this loop if you wish to extend your hike.

Asphalt trail with lots of off shoots to give you a variety of paths to hike. Well marked with frequent trail maps. Wildflowers, butterflies and bees to enjoy.

The prairie and popular loop are paved trails with minimal elevation changes but for hiking I did the big saw tooth trail which provides maintained grass trails that are rated most difficult with many hills. very nice trails with good elevation for the area. Overall very nice park.

Mixture of paved and unpaved trails. Easy paths, but does have a couple of unpaved paths they rate as difficult that we're closed today due to soft trails so will come back and do them later in the spring. Pretty quiet and peaceful out here though.

We love how many different branches this trail has. It feels like a new trail every time we go since you can take so many different ways.
