Hiked all 3 loops in middle Sept. It took 3 hours you have to watch your step. Lots of sticks and leaves on trail. keep on eye on the orange blazes. I ran into a deer and 2 raccoons on trail. No snakes this time. There is a little elevation on the hike but not much
. A little mud and slippery bridges. I would recommend for a private training hike.

Very new to hiking/exploring so this is from a beginner. The park would be amazing if it were maintained better and had better markings.

Beautiful walking trail and amazing mountain bike trail! My favorite scenic spot inside of Tallahassee. Lake Piney Z and Lake Lafayette are good for paddling too if the water isn't too low. Ospreys and Limpkin can be spotted here.

Two good loops - east and west. They offer different experiences. West offers a lake view, east is more wooded. Both are well marked and mildly challenging.

Short but nice little trail, I brought my puppy and she was able to hike it no problem. Also has a fenced in dog area where she was able to run around without the leash. I’d recommend going early before it gets busy, especially if you’re bringing a dog.

Great trail to run. Nice views. Saw a deer and just a nice run.

What trail?

This is a good trail if you want to go out for a walk, but if you're trying to get "in nature," I would pass. Part of the trail has you basically walking through the backyards of homes in a subdivision. Otherwise, the lake at the end is gorgeous and there was cool wildlife out there.

This trail is ideal to run with dogs. Most of the trail is shaded with green canopy. There is parking and water available (for humans and dogs).

Great series of connected bikes trails running from Weems Road east past the lakes, up through the heavily wooded hills and even across lakes to Billy’s Trail and Alford Greenway. Very diverse topography, and lots to see. There is truly something for everyone on this trail system! It’s one of my “go to” bike trails for a good work out and beautiful scenery. Easy to moderate.

Great easy wooded trail in the heart of the city. Easy to get to and fun!

One of our favorite trails. A little difficult to find the best exit from the end of the outer loop. Easy to moderate.

Nice open trails with a lot to choose from. The West Loop is nice with a view of Lake Jackson. The East Loop is more in the woods. Easy to moderate trails. Good diversity.

Gorgeous trail!

Not a bad walk. I think I was the first one there since I got all the spider webs. A lot of roots so watch your step.

We ended up walking a little over 6 miles because we got a little lost. Definitely plan to return again.

nice wide trail! Like all trails in Florida, bring bug spray! Great trail inside Tallahassee city limits!

Great walk. Awesome view.

We enjoyed this short trail. The steepheads are interesting and the bridges over the creek are nice. We didn’t see any remains from the Butler Mill site but the trip is worth it just to see the Indian mounds just before the trail.

Relaxing trail great for running.

Nice easy hike. Don't let the deers scare you when they jump out. All 3 trails combine for 9 miles and is a nice 3 hour hike.

Such a pleasant surprise! Near the park ave area, there is another little set of trail systems accessible via fern trail. Fun adventure.

This trail is a true North Florida gem! Needs a little maintenance but still a great trail. Did the outer loop (4.5 miles) which started with the Sinks Trail and connected to the Gum Swamp Trail to get the maximum distance.

My favorite trail in Tallahassee. The dog loves it too. Usually not busy, great views of the lake.

Nice easy trail with just the right changes in terrain and scenery. The Tupelo Swamp was the highlight of hike.

A hidden gem close to Tallahassee. Very well blazed orange loop. Backpacking the outer loop will give you a moderate 4.5 miles in and 4.5 miles out., if you camp on the site on the center loop. The primitive camp sites are on Lake Talquin and do not have any facilities, but do have a fire ring and a bench. You can easily hike in after lunch and out by lunch the next day. The trail is a moderate or easy/rolling loop with lots of short bridge crossings over streams. Plenty of places to purify water if needed but the hike is short enough that you can carry enough water to get in and out.
