Coopers Rocks state forest is a great area to hike, very scenic. This trail is more basic but leads to many other area. Great hike and great NF campground.

Nice easy trail but the road noise is pretty bad. You don't really feel like you are in a forest.

Neat and easy trail if you're looking to get outside without the exercise getting to strenuous. Ton of people on the day I went which was expected as the park gates were closed and this was the closest trail to the parking area.

Easy trail that runs along the road. Was useful for getting through the park quickly and to get to other trails. Very easy to walk and lots of people.
