Really a nice park, though it would be helpful to have more information posted about what trails are closed due to the Beach Drive construction. It resulted in a bit of backtracking because routes were closed off.

This is my favorite spot to go for a hike in the city. It's beautiful, the trails are well marked, and during the week you won't see many people. There are more people on the weekend, but due to the size of Rock Creel Park, I never felt it was too many people.
