Lovely park, some gorgeous autumn colour still at end of November. Many small birds, heard several woodpeckers. Sat and watched a Red Headed Woodpecker; quite easy to keep track of as many tree leaves had fallen at this time. Also sat on the dock watching a pair of Belted Kingfishers zooming & hovering over the water as they fished. Once they got thier fish they'd sit on the No Wake sign, wack the fish's head on it, and eat. Fabulous to be able to watch them so easily. At our home in Ireland the kingfishers are rather hard to watch! This pair stayed in view for about twenty minutes as we sat on the floating dock in the sun.

What a nice, well maintained park! The trails were well marked and easy to Follow. There were splendid wooded views and pretty river views as well. I will say that the description needs to be corrected. We did loops 1-6 and it totaled 5.5 miles. Not sure how much mileage 7-9 would have added but this is no 2 mile trail. But we highly recommend and will do again backwards so we experience loops 7-9. Dog friendly and dog approved.

I personally love this loop. It is long enough for a run that it doesn’t kill me, offers some unique views of the park, great variety for a trail run, and some very peaceful moments while running. I recommend doing this trail in early mornings or late afternoons as it adds more to this trail. Great for walking as well. Plus if you don’t want to do the full 9 loops, you can break it down how it works best for you.

Nice and well-maintained area. Plenty of benches and protected overhangs. Loops mean you are always near your start point. The roadway in is nice and peaceful. Pro closes at dusk.

Description of the trails are accurate. They people who are reviewing, have misread, just like I did. Loops five through nine, are about 2.2 to 2.5 miles, with good elevations, but its loops 5 through 9, as in 5, 6, 7, 8, and 9.

It's a short and easy hike. The woodland views are nice, but unremarkable. I would recommend combining loop 5 with another loop. Overall an enjoyable hike.

Like most of the loops in the park, it offers a beautiful walk in the woods. This trail has beautiful views of Queens Creek. And the mixed hardwood forest is magnificent. Be prepared for a lot of up and down, but never more than a few feet.

A nice trail on a beautiful day. A lot of big trees down from the storm the other night.

Some nice views of Cub Creek. Lots of big trees. I saw four deer but before I could get the camera out of my pocket the family moved on at a high rate. This trail has a lot of up and down but it is only a few feet.
