Clean and organized, but a little too public for my taste. The "fjord" is pretty cool.

Cleanly paved path for an easy walk or smooth bike ride. It's a nice trip to see the old covered bridge.

Easy walk, especially fun with a dog. This app made it easy to navigate all the trails.

Really enjoyed this one. There are a few small mileage trails that have a lot to offer, and that go deep into the woods. There's a log crossing over a stream, as well as a stone bridge as well.

The park offers a wide variety of trails, most of which are paved or well maintained. I've been a few times and one thing I always appreciate is how few people there are in the park. It's a good spot for leisurely exploring, not necessarily a place to go if you are looking for a strenuous hike.

It is a beautiful park but too much of it is paved. I like to feel like my feet are in nature and when there are paved trails it takes away from the feeling. It is the difference between a walk and a hike. That said, this park is nice for accessibility for more people. And I am a big fan for more people being able to get out in nature

It's a really nice spot for the whole family. I personally went just to do a quick run, which I find to be a very nice yet challenging due to some steep elevation. Definitely a positive experience.

Well-maintained and paved paths. The water fountain is conveniently located at the top of the highest hill. Adidtionally, Tyler's disc golf course is one of the best in the nation.

Easy enough for families. A bit crowded but enjoyable.

Bring your bike, running shoes, hoverboard etc.! Beautiful paved trails and nice views of the river. If you're in to frisbee golf, I think there are 18 "holes" in a wooded course. I haven't tried that sport but everyone looks like they are having fun.
You can also rent boats.

Awesome community park. Great for walks or runs. Some light off-road hiking, but mostly known for its paved paths. Tons of loops from 2-5 miles. We live in the area so we are there 2-4 times a week.

Tyler State Park has a beautiful Disk Golf course, probably my favorite in the area. The front 18 is East and the back 18 is West. Two people playing the full 36 takes about 4 1/2 hours so it's a day trip. We packed sandwiches and took a break half way through at the picnic tables by the parking lot. If you only have time to do 18 I recommend the East course. It's a little flatter and I like the scenery better. All in all beautiful park. Definitely recommended whether you play disc golf or not.

My planned route was along the paved pathways. I think I would have enjoyed it more had I taken the wooded trails. Even so, the views of the creek were beautiful as were the fall colors.

Great trail along a beautiful river. Great to take kids or walk the dog.

Beautiful scenery in a suburban park setting. Easy walking on the trails (paved) but some good off piste routes too.

Nice wide paved paths. Hiking paths seemed a bit overgrown. Nice people with nice dogs and kids.

Did a 5 mile hike this past weekend. First one for the year. Had great weather. Saw to bedded deer which was pretty cool. Heading back in a few days to explore some more of the park.

The best place in the area to hike. The trails are easy, but it is absolutely beautiful.

A great place to run and take walks!

Great place to go to relax. A lot of trails. Spent almost 2 hours here and felt like we barely put a dent in the trails. Very pet friendly and not too crowded. Felt like we were able to walk in a lot of areas even though there was some snow on the ground.
