The pond is really pretty and easy to get to. But other than that the trails are not well marked. It’s not necessarily difficult to find your way back to the main trails but it makes exploring a little uneasy.

Grew up going to these trails pretty much every weekend or break from school. Lots of nice trails. Big hills for sledding in the winter. Gorgeous views in the fall. Dog friendly. Recently it’s a little less maintained but still a place to enjoy nature.

Nice, easy trail. We definitely got off the beaten path a few times, but could get back to the main trails easily. Very little mud/bugs.

Pretty disappointed in this park to be honest. Starts off by being treated by an old couch cushion and a pile of garbage and dog poop in the parking lot. Then throughout the park there was quite a bit more garbage strewn about. The trails are not very well marked outside the couple main ones, which leads to a fair amount of trail blazing and uncertain bushwacking if you leave the three main trails (which are also not well marked). The small pond is pretty, but that was really the only highlight for me and the family.

Very confusing trail; we didn't really know where to go. Nice views though, with wide trails.

highly recommend, multiple little trails that go off the main one, all color coded so you don’t get lost.

Lots of well worn trails but almost no markings. Great for wandering around.

We enjoy the trails here, but have gotten lost many times.

Nice trails, but rather poorly maintained and lacking trail maps at each of multiple entrances. Interpretive signs are in poor repair and trail marking is inconsistent. It's not at all just a few small loops as the AllTrails map makes it appear.

beautiful trails, great pond to sit and have a picnic by. not well marked trails at all and there are a lot of trails. know where you are going because it is easy to get lost in there especially once the leaves have fallen.

I really enjoyed that there were so many trails to choose from. It was like a choose your own adventure and you might get a little lost (which I did)!

This was a great walk with the kids on 95 degree day. Cool and shady beneath the trees. The kids waded in the pond to cool off a little. I took a fishing pole out there just to see what I could catch. It wasn't much to catch but I caught a few and threw back. A great place for a short relaxing walk.

Good wide trails. Perfect for running, or just enjoying a nice walk with the kids. Trails well maintained.
