This is a wide trail throughout with many short hills. Maps and benches are sprinkled along the way. Lovely fall hike. There’s one stretch where 35E is super loud... wish there was a sound barrier there. But I was still able to see lots of critters and even three deer across a pond! The hike took me an hour and I had to rinse a little mud off my shoes after but I’ll be back.

Nice trail close to town. Mostly wooded trail with a few ponds. One section has heavy traffic noise.

If you want to follow this trail as shown, follow the posts with the blue marking that say "more difficult." (I'll post a picture.)

This was pretty fun. Some very steep spots that were real leg burners. A couple spots were pretty close to a highway, but it is in the metro area so that doesn't bother me too much. The last mile or so were very mosquito-y, but probably because it had just finished raining.

In the winter, most of the trails here are open to skiers only. There's an out-and-back that appears to be open to non-skiers.

The trails are nice but the map signage is beyond poor quality or non existance! Tried this park a few times and was lost to clueless as to where to go or where I was.

This trail has some pretty bogs and wooded areas. 70% of it is quite and serene, the other 30% has a good amount of road noise from the interstate. Be prepared for BUGS and bring spray. The trail is mostly sandy dirt so it's not too bad even after a heavy rain. Overall it's very enjoyable!
