Good cool down walk after Sleepy Hole run. Sunsets across the creek/marsh and the lightning bugs made it better.

More of a shortcut through a flying disc course that has a few views of the water. I like being outside though, so it's not as disappointing as some reviews. But there really isn't much to it. if you're looking for exercise, you're better off just walking up and down the road leading into the park and boating lot.

Not a trail; a happenstance path along parking lot mainly - but does have brief stroll through short woods to an outstanding view of lake.

Couldn't find any clearly marked trails.

Running trials have no sense of direction, bad footing so its more of a unsteady cautious jog than an actual run, parts where you can fall into the swamp, poor marking

I Love it! It's nice and clean and a great place to walk my dog!!! She can swim and snivel around. I'm from Germany and it looks like a German wood! Nice and peaceful!

It was was a pretty area, but I walked about 1.5 miles around the outside edge of the park and never found anything that looked like a longer trail. Where I walked was through a disc golf course.

A nice smaller park. Suffolk is now developing a park system. This one was very nice today on a sunny fall day. I saw a beaver, several ducks and countless squirrels. I heard a goose but could not see where he was. Besides a great walk, the park offers a boat landing, fishing pier, picnic areas, disc golf and more. I will have to give the trails a fair rating because there is windfall to be cleared but nothing to keep you from enjoying the hike.
