It’s a beautiful park! Love running there for a few quick miles, but not ideal for when I want to do a long run. Love this park!

Paved asphalt, a few short steep hills. Could be crowded on weekends when the weather is nice.

My first geocaching experience! Fun, I think we found 3... Couldn't find one, but the others weren't difficult.

It is for biking, no really mountain biking, and it is a little crowded but at the same time has nice views of the lake

fair length, road at some places need maintaining have bunch of big cracks, bumps and pot holes. can get busy with people so you have to slow down a lot until people move over, especially when ur space for navigation is narrowed due to pot holes. All in all its worth it.

Great, easy day hike with some amazing views. Most of the main path is pavement, but if you are looking to get away from the crowds or kick up some dirt while you walk, check out the hiking trails behind the Nature Center.

I walked the full circuit of Lake Galena just yesterday, which was a beautiful fall day. Being a Wednesday morning, and very warm, it was a quiet, peaceful, & enjoyable walk. Highly recommended to all, if you have the opportunity to take it in.

Always an easy visit for us whenever we have a free weekend. Nice photo-ops in every season. The trail area near the kayak/boat rentals, the dam, sailors point and the nature center bridge tend to get a lot of traffic (pedestrian/bikes). The remaining 3 miles or so is much more peaceful and mostly shaded. That section also has two areas of 8% grade. There is also a bird habitat area and nature trails near the Chapman Road/ Nature Center parking area. A blue heron was hanging out there last weekend around sunset. Kayaking, sailing, row boats, paddle boats and paddle boards are other activities you will see on the water here. You can rent by half hour/ hour/ day or bring your own.
