Great day hike on well maintained trails. There are several trail options (many quite short) but almost all crossroads are clearly marked with the trail names. Accurate trail maps with "you are here" indicators are dispersed throughout the main trails. Take a picture of the trail map at the trailhead for reference when in doubt. Some areas could potentially be quite muddy during rainy seasons. No breath taking lookout views here, but several winding paths by creeks in a peaceful forest setting. Need Discovery Pass

My favorite state park. Beautiful walk with some more "strenuous" segments. Beautiful streams and wooden bridge and walkways.

I love this place, it's quiet not to crazy or full and the scenery is nice. there is many different trails to take so you don't have to take the same one every time. I would recommend this place to anyone.

First visit to the park and it was great. The trails are not always marked, but never fear, all trails lead back somewhere familiar. The trails are for bikes and hikers, so beware of being on the narrower treks. There is a down side, especially with a dog, there are no bathrooms except at the beach area, which is still a ways from the parking lot. Nice scenery, cool wooden bridges and stairs, and a stream. Cool canopy cover, so that you are not baking in the sun. Hilly areas that present some challenges for those who do not want a straight shot hike or bike route. Parking can get packed. Just be prepared to be there earlier in the day or wait for a spot. Will need to have a Discover Pass or purchase one at the pay box. Overall, a great experience and will go to again.

Well marked just make sure to have a map with you just in case. Lots of variations of wide trail to walk. Great for dogs!
