Very easy which is why I can’t bring myself to call what we did hiking. Not much to see along the way. Very poorly marked. Great for beginners, small kids but don’t expect to be wowed.

We got a trail map in the nature center... It is also available online. The person working the desk helped us decide how to combine the trails into a 3 to 4 mile hike. We set up our hammocks by the pond... Great day!

Good, wide trails with plenty of scenery. With the kid center close by there is something for everyone.

Visited for the first time today and I have nothing negative to say! There's a basketball and volleyball court, a baseball and soccer field, a dog park, playgrounds, picnic areas, and of course many different hiking trails. I hiked a few miles today and it was very pleasant. Definitely will be visiting again soon.

Be sure to get a map of all the trails and take some of the rarely used trails for a real wilderness feel.

Nice easy beginner trail. Not sure why it is rated moderate? Cool get away in a big city.

Nice trail, but definitely need to be marked better. No trail maps provided either

Walked this trail and took fork to Robison Rock House Ruins. Great hike, but watch for snakes. Was sitting on a rock, thought I had looked and a copperhead was nearby. According to nature center the ruins are a hot spot for them, which makes total sense with the number of hidey holes! Gorgeous views and is a nice place to hike in summer, since the canopy keeps the trail cooler than in sunshine.

Really easy trail. There aren't much incline so if you want just a long trail without having to go up high, this trail is for you. There's also a nice area to fish if you are into that.

The system of trails at Reedy Creek allows one to hike many more miles than described above. I hiked 5 miles on a moderate trail. This parks has lots to offer.

Great walk/hike. The hardest trails are not that difficult with small changes in elevation. There's multiple trails here that one can do. Trails are not real busy.

Nice park in north part of Charlotte/Meck, has a dog park, soccer fields, pond etc. Basic hiking trails through nicely wooded areas. Have visited here many times with my dog, and invariably run across those people that don't get it. Dogs can be off their leash in the dog park, but need to be on their leashes outside of the fences! I ithink perhaps I am going to put a leash around the next obtuse dog owner we run in to ;+)

Awesome park! I go a few times a month with my dogs. They have disk golf as well as play grounds and covered shelters. It can be easy to get lost in the trials but it all goes back to the same place so you just have to keep walking. Still a good park the trails are nice as well.

It wasn't the quiet peaceful nature hike I hoped for, but once I made it into the back trails I did have a good walk and saw a nice sized black rat snake among other things.

Mostly wooded trails ,some small waterways, all very easy walking. Some picnic areas and the restroom. Not my first selection for a park or hiking.
