We had a great hike at Tyler State Park. The trails we covered are more or less pretty easy, with a very short climb or descent here or there. What is really great is that the trails go through a huge variety of habitats, which cover dense woods, swamps, fields, along the river, and more. We saw a ton of wildlife, including a fox which was pretty cool. The Creek Trail can be muddy, and we where there at least several days since the last rain. Part of this is because the horses churn the trail up a bit, which led to one downside, which was that there was A LOT of horse poop on some of the trails. We were dodging piles every few feet in some sections. The trails are very poorly marked. Almost no trails are marked with blazes, and there is very little signage. The trail map on the park website is not accurate, especially in the north portion of the park. Among other inaccuracies, the "Hay Barn Grass Trail" is impassable and has basically disappeared in the section in the northwest between the intersection with the white pine trail and dairy hill trail. All that being said, it's pretty hard to get lost as the park is not that big, and most trails converge on the same points eventually. The paved trails, and the areas around the boathouse and dam where fairly busy, but the trails, even the creek trail which I thought would be packed, were pretty quiet. Overall, we had a great hike and would be happy to visit again.

First time here and Memorial Day. Arrived before 9 and hiked 6 miles half on blacktop. Avoid main entrance and enter further up on Swamp Rd. There is one medium sized lot near covered bridge. Beyond the bridge go right and find a beautiful unpaved trail along the creek. Unless you want blacktop take the trails marked for horses but watch for droppings. Many fewer people beyond the bridge.

It is very picturesque park & the covered bridge is a unique sight. Pros: - clean - paved trails are wide & easy to bike on - plenty to see (saw a fox) Cons: - packed with people, difficult to find a parking spot - dirt biking trails contain very steep inclines, some are impossible to cycle through From biking experience I would sum it up this way: paved trails are very easy to bike on but there are many people. Biking on dirt trails is much more secluded but there are extreme inclines/declines & tons of trees' roots.

I would recommend this trail, it’s beautiful. It does get pretty busy though. And if you’re biking I would definitely make sure you know which way you’re going before you start because I went the wrong way a couple of times

Great trail, tons of people on way out but if you get there early it’s not as packed. We did the paved areas along with the back wooded trails and down by the lake. Beautiful scenery, and good hike. Highly recommend. A lot of nature views as well as wildlife. Fish, frogs, fox and whitetail deer!
