This was a mostly shady walk which is nice on a sunny 90 degree day. Lots of markings, narrow paths in the upper part of the trail but still walkabale.

Many beautiful trails and a great place to bring kids!! There is so much to see weather wildlife or plants! It may be muddy at times on certain trials after rain so watch out for that. But overall all trials are quite easy and flat. Highly recommend to bring children here. I go here quite often year round!

I’m only reviewing the North Loop. It was ridiculously muddy. I wouldn’t recommend anyone run or hike here as it hasn’t rained much and 80% is deep mud. I imagine it’s like this year round.

There are manyTrails here the beaver trail was decent but short the northern loop that we came to walk was very wet and very muddy people were walking 50 to 75 feet off the trail to stay out of the mud and there’s no dogs allowed.

A very nice place to spend your time hiking. Everything is mostly flat but you still get a great work out. Check out ht Beaver Trail that is our favorite.

January 1 "First Hike" was also first visit here. Trail was, as expected, icy however with mini spikes and trekking poles no problem to navigate. Looking forward to return visit with snowshoes.

I love this place for the diverse habitats and wildlife that abounds. I’ve seen many species of birds here, as well as rabbits and deer. Definitely check it out in early spring to hear the woodcocks in the evenings.

It was snowing flurries, when we went snowshoeing. We took the North Loop Trail. It was serene, picture-perfect wonderland. Many heartful thanks to folks who made this happen and maintain this gem in our backyard.

I hired a trail guide to bird watch the trail with me... She was a snot. I saw a lot of great birds... No thanks to her.

Nice easy walk and pretty in the fall. I went with my sister and nieces, ages 7 to 2 1/2 and they managed just fine. The path we took was called Beaver Tree Trail

Walking

Trails are suitable for almost anyone but I found the trails to be rather confusing. There's a number of junctures that you can get easily lost at. That being said. It was fun and you can see a lot of wildlife: deer, turtles, ducks, chipmunks, rabbits and squirrels galore. I think I may have seen a beaver but... it ran away! :(

Went there today with my 4 and 6 year old daughter and son for their "first hike" ... did the Vlomankill Trail ... this was perfect for the little ones. We ended coming back on the bird watching path down to the Beaver Tree path over the river. All the trails are very well maintained. It was a bit hot and didn't see to much wildlife, but I will definitely come here again.

Hiking

Our family visits Five Rivers periodically throughout the year. Great trails for the whole family, and lots of spaces for impromptu picnics. Only downfall is that they have construction going on now, but, the good side is it looks like they are expanding the environmental center and parking lot for future visitors!
