Loved it; 90% of dirt trails are cover with vegetation. No elevation, easy to do with kids. No markings for trail names. Recommend downloading map before arriving. Lots of mosquitoes. Repellent is a must.

Had to come a second time

Considered a good trail for family hiking and biking. Mostly flat prairie like trails on dirt. Has a harder loop (EKG) and Fun Town mostly for bikes, but closed due to high water. Last part of the trails were trimmed back yesterday. The west, north and east loops are located with in a dense tree area with north and east being surrounded and mostly covered in trees. All loops have bypass’s and there is a bypass to the concrete trail slightly after fun town / west loop. Trail has a good number of hikers, bikers and wild life (had a turtle on the trail surprise me last time).

It was very thrilling and really take the energy out of you. It feels like your walking forever. Make sure to bring bug spray because it like a bug city. But it was probably one of the best hikes I’ve done.

This is a nice shady trail. Muddy spots weren’t too bad with hiking boots on.

Did the first 3.5 miles as per the map then detoured to the paved trail another 6.5. In all fairness the trail was closed but we went anyway. My bad. Muddy, overgrown and closed for good reason. This will be one I revisit in the "cold" months as it would be lovely sans mass vegetation, bugs, webs, and knee-high grass. Had no trouble hiking 11 miles in total. Beautiful park. Saw 2 bobcats - meow.

This was kind of a bust. Just a paved trail, that a lot of it is closed off. Traffic was pretty heavy on a Saturday, mid-day. I did see a pretty big bobcat in the brush, near the lake. Plenty of trash and dog turds on and next to the trail. Many, many middle aged people, stuffed into spandex who think they're Lance Armstrong.

Flat, smooth, and fast! The rail is designed for flow. Appropriate for all mountain bike skill levels, including youth. Other riders in the area are very friendly and social. Trail is appropriate for other activities also.

Huge park and huge loop. Hikers and bikers go head on so they don't run into each other. Great layout with areas for people of all abilities.
