There is a $5 fee for the park. If you frequent these trails might be worth the $60 season pass per vehicle. The Cicada Trail and Cottonwood Trail are two different trails. Cottonwood is an actual loop. There is an 1850s homestead out on the Cottonwood trail to visit that is pretty neat. Cicada is short walk in and out and much narrower than Cottonwood. I found the map here doesn't quite match up to the actual hike though.

HikingGreat!

Really enjoyed this one. There is a $5 fee but as of December 2020, it is paid via card. They are not taking cash!

Got eaten alive by mosquitoes, please use a lot of repellent everywhere. Other than few pretty mushrooms there is not much to see :-( Maybe once all the trails are open we can give it a fair review

Peaceful, easy secluded trail with lots of different points to see. Check out the 1850s homesteads, you can even take a look inside. The Cicada portion of the trail is very wooded, but feels very close to nature. Bring bug spray!

The lady on the gate was very kind and friendly. I would recommend this trail to anyone looking for a fun adventure with kids. The gravel paths are wide and spacious. We went early and there was no one else, which made it even more special. I highly recommend taking the cottonwood trail, we were able to see many ducks and explore the old log cabins. Keep a mask in case you came across other hikers.

*5$ admission fee* and only two trails are open. Very pretty but outside of the two (short) trails, there’s not a lot worth an admission fee.

Went there this spring time. There is fee and cash only fee admission!! We had leave the entrance drove around in early morning to got 5 bucks drawn from a ATM. Got excited to drive through the entrance final. It was a disappointment after all the troubles to get in. This trail is ok but there was nothing else worth to looked at.

you have to pay $5 to enter for a daily pass. the paths were easy to follow. no internet service so it's impossible to keep track on this app!

Such a peaceful & shady area. Highly recommend for an easy, nature-filled walk. This trail winds through wooded areas & there are several trails off the Cottonwood. The 1870s Log Cabin and Dug Out Home are intriguing; the wildflowers in May are gorgeous and abundant. There are so so so many butterflies, too!

First to Review

Love this easy, gravel paved path. Suitable for jogging strollers or young hikers. The 1850 homestead is off Cottonwood Trail. It's open to the public every 3rd Saturday with events such as candle making, butter churning and other events. Cicada is a .6 mile foot path through the forest...strollers not recommended.
