we really enjoyed this place. I have a 5yo, 2yo, and 3 month old and toss was the perfect place to come play and explore. easy for the kids to walk. there's ducks you can feed, a boardwalk, walking path and from what we found, two separate play areas for the kids. I can't wait to go back with my family.

this is basically a park with disc golf and trails.. and not much hiking .. why it's listed as difficult is very surprising to me.

Mainly a bike trail that is paved you can take many of its side trails that follow Creek beds be wary of snakes next to the creeks otherwise you need to jog or run the pave trail to get a good exercise.

It's a good place to take young kids to get them used to walking in "nature" (as much as you'll get in the city). Parking is limited on the weekends when it's nice outside.

More Park then trail needs expansion badly, good stair climbing at the end.

Nice wetland, very short trail. Not really a hiking trail but OK if you are in the area and have some time to kill.

This is a nice park to take the kids to, or for a nice stroll, but not really a hiking/ walking trail. It's got a nice wetland/ bird watching area.

Very easy walk. The trails overlay a frisbee golf course which makes this less of a hike and more of a patch of woods with some walking paths. It is definitely possible to get away from the frisbee players and get a more "hike" feel but it's relatively short lived. My wife and I use this place for a great practice walk for new gear or the after dinner outing.
