I love Greensfelder. My great-great grandfather Charles Evans once owned several hundred acres that is now part of Greensfelder. It's an excellent place to camp and to hunt for rocks in the creek.

Nice Park. Trails are generally well maintained. No blazes, but markers located at intersecting trails. Quite a few nice trails in the park to choose from.

Eagle Valley Trail, approx 3.5mi. Delightful changes in terrain, elevation, & plants.

Trailhead: When driving from i44, do NOT turn right onto a one-way road as soon as you see a "Welcome to Greensfelder" sign. Just stay on the two-lane & you'll get to the visitor's center & trailhead much faster!

Trail Traffic: Unlike the app's description ("heavily trafficked"), we only saw a handful of other people on a Saturday in July :)

Caution: Look carefully when the Eagle Valley (blue) & Deer Run (yellow) trails unite. We followed a dry downhill tributary and had to double back.

Special treat: wild raspberries! Yum!

Did the Joseph Declue Trail today - nice fairly easy hike - had some hilly areas but not a lot - watch for horses on the trail and what they leave behind. Also had lots of bike riders on this trail. Signage could be improved especially where trails overlap. I would do this trail again

Nice quiet trail even though there were several cars parked at the trailhead. If you're walking beware of horse manure. Watch your step. Otherwise very scenic and shady. You will need the bug spray if hiking in spring/summer. In some spots the trail is not very wide so be careful when bikers are passing. Wear good shoes as some parts are very rocky and can turn muddy.
