As noted by others it is poorly marked. I relied on this app to stay on course when I was in doubt. Aside from that it was pleasant, I went in October so it wasn't buggy.

As others have said, very poorly marked. Some trail signs and arrows are bleached out or missing. Trails disappear into mowed meadows without clear marking of resumption. Some steep and potentially muddy inclines. More paths than marked here.

Poorly marked. Easy to get turned around. If you are a novice bring a map or your phone.

The trails themselves are very nice. Elevation changes are easy and views are descent. Not much wildlife. After school during the spring you're bound to run into track or cross country kids practicing.

Beautiful trail if you don't care that's it so poorly marked you may never find your way out. Absolutely no reason this can't be marked on trees. Found one intersection with signs to the one and only parking lot yet it said to go in opposing directions. Shame on the portage park system

When I first decided to hike the woods I didn't know what to expect. I quickly came to find s beautiful hiking spot! I'm amazed at how many variations of trails and routes one can take! The trails are well maintained. The only downside is that some of the trails are NOT well marked so be careful not to get turned around if you are a novice!

Nice secluded local trail. Some elevation changes but nothing dramatic. Lake trails are nice and scenic. Usually not too busy. Snow sledding hill in the winter along with cross-country skiing.

Short but lots of trails so you can mix up your hikes.

Park entrance and trailhead is easily accessed from the Portage Hike & Bike trail. Bike racks available. Water fountain and bathrooms.
