Great paved trail with light elevation. Quiet-I saw one other person on the trail during both mid morning weekdays.

Had a fun hike. Gorgeous day to get out. It was pretty empty at 10 am. More people showed up after noon.

Some decent wildlife viewing, but trails are not very well connected and there isn't a lot to do for how far it is.

I went here with my dog for a hike once and a run another time! Some of their trails are perfect for a jog with well maintained paths (Dogue trail). Others are better a hike because they're less traveled with lots of roots. I appreciate both! My dog loves coming here and I plan to come back many times!

Well kept trails for the most part, great vistas of Belmont Bay, and overall a peaceful and quiet park especially on weekdays. I enjoy walking the trails often.
