A rare 65° January day means muddy & slushy trails, but still a beautiful day for a 3 mile hike. Use caution on the hills, as there is still plenty of ice under the trees. Enjoy!!

Great scenery on a leisurely walk. restrooms were open and very clean. trash cans placed for easy use. pavilions to sit under for lunches etc., benches to rest as you walk, great playground for children, nice 9/11 memorial, old memories of Benson's wild animal farm where some cages and structures still stand......a very peaceful and clean park to visit with family, great for kids, walking the dogs or to just plain get some refreshing alone time for yourself. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Nice mix of hiking trails and city park. Too bad it in not a larger area for more hiking.

Did the blue trail. Awesome trail. You go pretty deep into the woods so it gets really buggy, and there are a ton of large roots and rocks everywhere so you need to watch your footing. Tough trail to bike and the hills make it pretty tough to run. Fun time though.

Great little trail with very few hills. The whole outer loop was shaded when I went at 6pm on 7/1. Bugs were pretty well controlled by a liberal application of Off. There were some folks out there playing music on their phones which is a personal pet peeve of mine (if you do this....omg please just use headphones) but most people were courteous and friendly. As others have said, it's well marked and great for after work or with kiddos.

perfect before/after work trail walk or even run. fairly popular spot for locals but plenty of trail options. trail is clearly marked and is perfect for the dogs!

This isn't the most exciting trail, but it's definitely relaxing and worth visiting when you don't feel like hiking a mountain. :)

Really great views along the way with lots of little paths to take. Not sure I would call this a hike but a great walk for sure!

This trail is great for people who just want a quick short hike! Half the trail is rooty but the other half is not really rooty and is great for running! The part that is in the woods is well marked so it is pretty hard to get lost.

beautiful trails well marked and dog friendly but a little busy.
