Nice loop/ walk.

One of my favorite local trails during off peek months. There is a dog park, across the path — so be aware there are a lot of roaming dogs. You can also camp here. Will be giving this a try this summer. Just for the fact it’s local — and who doesn’t want to sleep under the stars, roast marshmallows and have access to the lake all to your self for a night. 來

Lots of interesting history, worth seeing at least once. Definitely great for families.

Great loop with many options. I wish there were posted trail maps that showed all of the smaller trails.

You do not have to be a Redding resident, I go here all the time and I live in Bethel. It's super pretty and I always see cute ducks and great fungi.

first and formost, NEED TO BE A REDDING RESIDENT!! This should have been in the information part you read. Drove 40 min to check this place out to only find out that information. There is a pond, wouldnt really call it a lake. Lots of bugs in area. And tons of people walkjng their dogs off leash even though its posted about 10 times that they must be on a leash. So, nice short walk, but dont bother if you don't live there.

Easy hike around the pond. Moderate one to the top of the mountain but the view is worth it. Lot of people dogs.

I’ve hiked here with dogs twice now and found it to have well-marked, nice trails. The dogs loved it and I can see how it’d be a nice spot to go to in the warmer months.

Love this place. Easy hiking and beautiful scenery.

Easy walking trails with great historical markers around the loop.

A nice kid friendly walk. Five and four year olds found many interesting things to see.

Great hike. Well marked. Would prefer in the fall when the leaves expose the reservoir.

Decent easy loop with the dog. Lots of foot (and paw) traffic. Little historical spots along the way keep it amusing.

Great place to take my young kids for a walk. The lessons they learned about the parks history as a late 1700's military encampment along the way made it perfect for some fresh air, exercise and education.

Beautiful, well-marked trails around the northern end of the Saugatuc Reservoir. Easy to moderate. Offers great views of the lake.

Dogs are allowed off leash anywhere during off season. During Mem Day-Labor Day no dogs near beach or picnic area but the dogs have a fenced in swim area around the side of the pond.

Brought my dog for a walk. Nice climbs for a good workout, fairly easy to navigate. Nice rocky terrain in most parts, beautiful pond people swim in during the summer, must have a pass to do so.

Small little loop around the pond at topstone. pretty nice place for younger children to be brought along and swim during the warm seasons. Built a fort out in the woods somewhere in there 2 years ago but have not been there since building it.

By far my favorite place to hike to in all of redding. best view in town. there is a G-O casher hidden right around the ledge behind the small drop off if you walk back into the woods a little hidden underneath a rock that sticks out over another.
have hiked this trail spring, summer, fall and winter and it never gets old. always loved climbing down the ledge to the bottom where there were a few artists who did some taggnig down there over the past 15 years.
must have done this hike 100 times at least. use to live within 5 miles of it and it was a great run every few days out of the week.

One of my first ventures into the outdoors, history, and hiking. There is a Youth Group camping area.
There are reenactments throughout the year. There is a museum with great info. There is a picnic area on a lake across the street from the historic area.
