One of my favorite places to hike locally - that and Abe Lincoln right around the corner. Great little bit of trail system going down to the wet area with some neat streams (people kayak through). A little hilly but that adds to the fun. I recommend this to anyone as there are ways to make it easier or shorter if needed, or enough places to explore around for a few hours.

Love this hike! The trails are a little confusing at first, but there is always great wildlife encounter. The park is full of deer, chipmunk, squirrels, plenty of birds, and at the creek I always see turtles and frogs. This is a great hike during the winter too. You can really see the old rifle range with all the leaves gone. Typically, there is very little traffic, which could also be why I like this park so much.

Very buggy. Trails are marked but confusing. Was trying to loop and ended going back out on same trail. Would not do again.

Won't let me give it only 1 star. Didn't hike it. A friend and her niece had their rear windows smashed out in the parking lot. Don't want mine done.

we went here because it was marked dog friendly. unless you have a very independent dog, I would not recommend it. trails were incredibly steep in some spots, and we lost sight of the trail it was so overgrown in others. I'd say this is more meant for hiking and mountain bike riding.

First time coming here, nice trails, not badly marked. Lots of bugs as to be expected some trails were over grown with that said there was a gentleman near the old rifle range clearing brush back from trails with a machete.

Really surprised at the trail system here. Well marked and groomed. Diverse terrain. Two of us and a dog hiked blue through the center of the area and then white along the water / marsh area.
