This trail system features varied woods, gentle hills, and a few creeks.
Be aware that this is a trail system consisting of 6 or 7 trails and not just a loop. A crudely carved "map" at one trailhead doesn't offer any indication of this. There are signs at each junction, but no other markings or signage. The two main loops were fairly broad and clear, but two branch trails just disappear.
Also note that one branch trail cuts through a barb-wire fence and another one connects to a utilities cut, so use your best judgement to avoid tresspassing and be prepared to whack some bushes.

The timber is beautiful in this park. Awesome playground and hike with smaller kids. I just wish the trails were marked better through the wooded part of the park, or at least a trail map you could take a picture of.
