My wife and I did hiking today. We first went on the red trail and then connected to blue trail. The red trail was well maintained, but the blue trail was muddy and requires some TLC. The muddy thing may be the result of rain the day before. It appears that the blue trail is mainly for biking, less popular for hiking and very poorly marked. Overall, the park itself is good and has many facilities for group activities. We may come back again to do the entire red trail.

Went out today-great weather, but NOOOO trail blazes. (I was on the not-paved trails) It's really a shame. Great location, but very poorly maintained. AllTrails maps claim that certain trails exist, but there were none to be found near the back end of the loop. We ended up going through someone's backyard to get into the neighborhood to make the final mile back to our cars.

This is a very nice paved trail. If you're looking for a real hike, this is not the place, but it's a lovely place to take a long walk with dogs or strollers. There's plenty of lake views and good amount of wildlife to take in. A fun place to take the whole family!

It has been awhile but this park has a lot of different activities. I have taken some nice photos of red tail hawk. Sorry no pix on this phone.

Good place to start. A lot of paved walkways with some that veer a little further into the woods. Ended up walking alongside the lake. Good for beginners.

This is a great place to run for beginners or those looking for something easy, small portions of it are paved but once you get past that, it's all narrow trails with tight turns and small rolling hills
