Well maintained trail system that has a mix of wide open flowy parts and really tightly woven single-track through the trees. Definitely worth a ride or three.

I went hiking here to check out the trails and campsites. It seems ok for a day hike or camping with small children. Quite a bit of mowed areas (seems like a waste to me). The campsites are pretty far apart compared to most cul de sac campgrounds but right up next to the road with no privacy. The trails are well kept and pretty easy, only a few steep hills. Seems like a great spot for mountain bikes. I probably won't camp here but it's within the city, so I'll be back to stretch my legs on occasion.

My go-to trail on DORBA... close to home and has a great vibe that touches your soul when you're riding thru it.

The Erwin Park Trail system is a diverse one with a nice mix of shaded and open field areas. We hiked the day-after rain, so some of the trail areas under the trees were a little challenging. The trail system is big enough so you don't feel crowded in with a lot of other people; or stuck following slower folks; or, in the way of ones going faster. No snake or wildlife sightings, although there were plenty of large bobcat tracks. Erwin Park is billed more as a mountain bike than trekking/hiking trail, but we felt it was good for either.
