Very easy paved trail around the park. Lots of picnic tables, some dogs and kids. Very family friendly! We loved the Japanese garden especially the fish pond. We also went through the forest in the back of the park and followed a few trails. The directions on AllTrails is perfect!

I’m not sure I would call this hiking, more like walking.

Easy & short hike. We went in early April and there were tons of blooming cherry trees that were gorgeous!

At the very back of the park, behind the picnic area, there is a collection of poorly marked but easily navigated trails. There are white blazes, and green blazes and tin medallions embossed with a “hiker” logo. I couldn’t make sense of any of them, but honestly you don’t even need them. My guess is that these trails were created for picnickers to walk off an afternoon of hotdogs, potato salad and beer. Nothing challenging here, but if you don’t like walking on cement, this is a decent alternative. The front of the park has a nice Japanese garden and a well groomed trail through pines and azaleas. Certainly not a “destination” but if you are in the neighborhood it makes for a decent afternoon or morning.

Not bad, don't expect to rack up many miles. Tried to find trail all the way to the lake to the NE, but it became hard to follow and I had to stop due to water/swamp. The portions closer to picnic area are nice, dry, and well marked, with occasional sitting spots (benches) in the woods. Be aware that there is some deer hunting activity going on back there. I saw the typical signs, and I believe a few people are allowed to archery hunt there legally.

I took my prom pictures here, in their cozy little Japanese garden. Also, this is no trail, just a large area for sports rec.

Beautiful hiking trails and very easy on our two year old daughter to walk. We loved hearing the birds and we were alone on the trails. Nice playground but REALLY needs to be cleaned and updated.

Nice trail when it's dry. Summer heat brings lots of mosquitoes from the river.

Nice and easy 2.5 mile loop trail around this beautiful park. The Japanese garden is a perfect spot for photo shoots, the woodland trail is well groomed and the river section is sure to have water fowl and sometimes otters and beavers.

This is a really beautiful garden and trails. It was all beautiful and tranquil but I liked the aroma garden best.

The front section of Red Wing Park Gardens is beautiful! It might not be Norfolk Botanical Gardens, but then it is free. The local garden clubs maintain the gardens. I really loved the wooded trails in this section.
