Its actually not a bad little place. I like that its often overlooked, so there arent many people there at any given time, unless there is a poker ride. The trail is really short though, and it isnt much of a challenge. When I say "little," I mean just that. Cute place surrounded by farm land, in farm country. Good place to pretend you are in the woods.

More of a "walk" than a "hike" - I really enjoyed my time here though ❤️

Nice variety, some open space, some forest. Main loop is mostly paved or smooth gravel. Lots of options to explore besides the main loop, including equestrian trails that don't seem to be highly trafficked. You could easily stretch this to 7-8 miles if so inclined. Trails are very well marked.

This is a great park to walk the dog, really easy going paths to follow. I would advise the mosquitos in the shaded areas parallel the river were pretty aggressive mid summer but once away from those areas it was easy strolling. Great place to run as well. This is a state park so if you frequent, check out the state parks web site to find the year and two year passes, five bucks a visit can start to add up.
