An easy stroll through a historically significant, lush, wooded trail. This easy hike takes has several routes to make the trip as long or short as you want. There's picnic tables and even a fenced dog park along the way.

A great trail with lots of beautiful scenery - an awesome place for a walk or run for all different kinds of trailblazers! This is a perfect place to spend a Saturday picnicking, casting a reel into the water, playing fetch at the dog park, biking or strolling through the thick wooded trails, and taking in some of the many breathtaking vistas!

Nice hike with the kids. They really liked the bridges and lookout points. I prefer a little tougher retain, but this is perfect for when we bring the kiddos along. It is a bit buggy, so I highly recommend putting on some bug spray before heading out.

It's nice to have a place like this close to home. The trail is well defined, and safe. There are also a few hills. Like one of the previous reviewer said, I love that it is near downtown Smithfield.

Beautiful park, well maintained, level, gravel paths. It felt very safe. I've been a few times to walk the paths. I wouldn't really call in "hiking", although you can certainly turn into a 6 mile walk if you zig-zag through all the paths. I like to walk the park, then walk about 2 blocks to downtown Smithfield for an ice cream cone afterwards. :)

A really nice trail in a nice park. It is strictly a bike path with pedestrians not allowed. Sadly, it seems to be underused, judging from all the spider webs and the lack of tire marks. The park map shows it as a perfect circle; not even close. It zig-zags around the park inside the 3 mile pedestrian trail.

I estimate that 2/3rd of this loop was out in the open. If I want a sunburn I will go to the beach. I still gave it a 3 because it is a nice trail other than the Jericho Road part.

Nice park except for the open areas. I did not like running down the road.

There are several places to enter the park and pick up the outer trail. This trail enjoys all of the moods of the park from forest to open farm land to wetlands.

Enter the park from Mason Street. There is usually free parking on Sykes Court and the neighbors are nice. Keep left until you come to Jericho Road then turn right and follow it around to the park headquarters. Then exit right on the trail back to the trail you came in on.

The park has about six miles of trails counting the big three mile loop, several smaller loops, the mountain bike trail and connectors. There are a lot of open areas so be prepared. The castle looks more like a house to me but what do I know. There is a bark park for those with dogs.
