Really well used. Paths wide and smooth mostly. Several anonymous paths. Easy to walk in circles.

A surprisingly great hike in what feels like the middle of the suburbs! A great quick exercise!

I've hiked this half a dozen times probably and it's amazing everytime. I've been caught in the rain here a few times also, this is a good trail if you think you might get rained on. The canopy protects pretty decent. This time I saw a little baby racoon. How cute is that!

I think the star rating system can be misleading. I give it 3 stars, not because it’s a bad hike but because it’s generally mediocre. It’s generally easy with a couple of inclines that could get you breathing heavy. Alder Pond which connects nearby is small but beautiful on a foggy morning. With the connecting trails it’s easy to turn this into a 4 mile hike. Worth a visit for sure but for me not a hike I’m likely to return to often.

There are a handful of connecting trails, but I ran out of daylight. Nothing out of the ordinary to share. Highlight was getting up to about 10 feet of a family of deer.

This trail is home base for me. Serenity awaits. Perfect for a moderate sunset hike.

I am glad I got the opportunity to explore this trail. Though it is in a really populated area, once you’re in the woods it really doesn’t seem like you’re in a city. The exercise stations along the way are a neat concept. Most of this trail is sand and stone, so it doesn’t get too muddy except in a few places.

Nice hike. The hills make for a nice hike. It was peaceful and I hiked to Alder pond which is totally worth it!

Always like this trail. There are some hills which is good for the workout. Exercises are easy. And the signs tell you when to walk and when to run. Those mosquitoes

Good trail for someone with dogs or children. The parkour Trail is good for someone looking for a structured workout during a hike. It's mostly flat and easy to walk the trails are clear. the only downside for me is that it is very crowded and I mostly like to take walks in quiet nature as much as possible.

The trail itself is pretty cool. HOWEVER, the noise pollution from interstate 76 is just too much. If you don't mind the constant hum of highway, which you can't escape, then go for it. I came here for a quiet escape into a trail but the highway buzz was just too much for me.

The trail was hilly and pretty. My only complaint is with the signage. It is lacking compared to other parks.
