To clarify another review, the park is in the woods behind a Jail. There is a federal prison next door. Single women (and even married women) are just as safe here as anywhere else. Having worked there for 20 years, I would venture that this area is safer than other parks not behind a Jail. Lately, I’ve been walking it weekly and the most dangerous thing I’ve seen yet is some obvious extramarital meetings.

With that out of the way, this is a fun little hike. Just hilly enough to be moderately challenging at times. They’ve put a lot of work into building it. There are some informative signs about a couple of landmarks and a small fitness trail.

Great trail. Has nice canoe/kayak launch, fitness stations and fishing pier. Hidden gem behind the regional jail.
