Nice, very easy walk mostly on old farm roads with historic buildings. Partly in full sun, partly in pine forest so not very shady. There are 2 loop trails: Rockefeller 2.0mi and Cypress Point 0.75mi. The app is showing a combination of the 2. The app also has duplicate listings for the combined trails.

Great easy trail! Hit it about 1730 and it was cool and beautiful! A little mud but not difficult at all!

Couldn’t complete the whole trail due to part of it was closed due to the trail being washed out. Back side of the trail was behind a subdivision so kind of weird walking behind people’s homes.

Not a bad trail with kids. The first 3/4 of a mile or so is completely uncovered so if you’re bringing kids make sure not to forget sunscreen.

First time being there it was awesome! Didn’t know you had to pay to walk it though.

A nice side trip, not a big destination park. Carver's Creek has a lot of potential, especially after the dam is repaired.

Nice trail! No one else was on it. Recommend taking picture of trail map as most trails are well labeled. However Gilbert Yager Trail is hardly marked. Overall will definitely come back!!
