Great for strolling around with a baby! Easy, paved loop with pretty scenery. Besides a baseball field, there is also a volleyball net, swing set and soccer field. Can see enjoying this park for many years to come with the kids.

GPS brought me to the side of Route 94 but the trailhead is at the end of the road in Lodestar Park.

Overall an easy hike that is suitable for just about any skill level. The educational markers could use some attention as a few are missing or damaged. I picked up some trash and empty water bottles but more maintenance is needed.

Although the trail is very basic with only a few intersecting paths, better blazing would be helpful.

Not much to see on the trail but the park itself is a great place to bring the kids, dogs, or bikes. Sports fields and playgrounds also located here.
