WalkingGreat!

Great find as we’ve been visiting animals many times and thanks to all trails, we discovered the trail. I followed the map and the area walked was quiet secluded and we enjoy the beautiful autumn day and took many pictures.

Frying Pan Park Nature Trails is a system of tangled trails that are fun to explore. There are several entry points that are well marked. The official trails are supplemented with bushwacked, informal trails that provide a sense of adventure. While the trail is generally easy, fully appreciating the trail involves fording the Frying Pan Park stream over quarry stones.

Not marked well at all, lots of mud and bugs. Confusing walking the trail along with the app as it doesn’t seem to match. Offshoots of trail just randomly end and go nowhere. This is a trail for children and young kids to learn. It’s short, easy, and has multiple areas to see things (marsh, tree markings, bird houses, etc). Not a good hike for someone who wants to HIKE.

Agreed not much of a trail and if it does actually loop it’s hard to figure out that part.
