Many of these trails are designated for biking but people still use them for hiking which is slightly annoying but the trails are fast and flowly in many parts. Lotta fun.

Nice loop around Green Mountain Lake at Lakeside Park. The only slightly strenuous part is the hill at the east side of the trail, which features an outdoor chapel dedicated in 1956. The trail splits just before this hill, so there are two ways up - one that tracks close to the lake and another that goes directly up over the hill. The trails in both Lakeside and Murrow Parks could be better marked, and my understanding is that efforts are underway to do so. This hike features some nice lake views, especially from the west side. The portion of the trail that follows the lake shore is accessible right after the stone bridge on the service road. At the trail head you can either walk around service road or take the little shortcut across the spillway to start. Plenty of parking, either near the park entrance or west, past the athletic fields.
