Explore the most popular forest trails near Woodstock with hand-curated trail maps and driving directions as well as detailed reviews and photos from hikers, campers and nature lovers like you.

We had to read signs carefully and dodge bikers throughout, but it was a nice hike. Even took a cut through to spend a few moments by the lake. Lots of places to rest with benches. Very up and down, like a roller coaster.

This is a mountain bike trail - so bikes should be respected at all times, and pedestrian traffic should be in the opposite direction. This is well marked at the start of the trailhead. That said, your best bet for hiking or trail running is very early or late in the day, so that you are not in the bikers way (because, after all, this is a biking trail first and foremost).

Great single track trail with a good variety of obstacles. Green, Blue, and Red sections loop - so you can add more distance to the walk as desired. Nothing really scenic - just a walk in the woods.

easy back and forth trail next to a pretty river. all ages and levels

Skip this trail if you want to go hiking in the woods. The only walking trails are really paved beside the river. Once you’re in the woods, it’s a constant barrage of mountain bikes speeding toward you and then getting upset if you don’t see them in time.

Nice and very scenic. Loved this park! Will be back soon!

I enjoy the trails. Walkers need to be mindful of those on bikes. The scenery is heavenly.

Well maintained by SORBA. Diverse terrain of deciduous and pine trees, rises and falls, straightaways and switchbacks. Must stay alert for bikes AND roots/rocks. Avalanche loop 1 & 2 take you above the Little River at a dam and another white water spot. You can hear I-575 traffic, especially in winter. Avalanche loop 3 escapes car noise.

this trail is not what it used to be. so the rating went to a 3* I love ❤ this place and hang out quite often. I've since not gone so often because of all of the trees cut down and benches and swings along the river have been cleared out. its mostly concrete trail and bikers trail. watch out for the poop too, this park has some dirty hikers not picking up after their animals.

Easy walk, nice remains of the old mill and river views

Bikes on the sidewalk, when you cross the bridge it’s foot traffic. Very busy on nice weekends.

This seems more of a biking trail.... watch out on the weekends.

very co did I g with bikers

It's ok - trails need work and you have to dodge bikes that you often don't see in time

Trails seemed geared towards mountain biking rather Rahman hiking. It's pretty easy to get lost as well.

Lots of biking trails but the walking trail is really short.

There was only 1 walking trail! There was a lot of mountain bike trails, so you can't walk on the trails or you will get runned over by a mountain biker! It was only a 10 minute walk there and back on the walking trail! There were tons of people canoeing in the lake! So I would recommend that!

very crowded on the trails for walking.

Love it. Lots of ways to stop and take in the scenery and you can bring your dog!

I rode the trail for the first time. A lot of fun. The trail flowed perfect. It rained a few hours before I got there and was very muddy but that just added to the fun. Can't wait to return.

Very nice trails, think it would be perfect for biking. Only drawback for trail running is that some trails are forbidden to runners, and obviously dodging bike traffic is tedious.

Great little park. Lots of places to swim, bike, hike or hang a hammock. A popular launch spot for kayaks too. Parking is really limited, so you might have trouble finding a spot on the weekends, but there's an overflow lot that's not too far of a walk. I find if I come here closer to dusk I need to wear bug spray, which is my only real complaint. There's lots of pools of standing water along the trail we generally walk, which just breeds mosquitoes. I get eaten alive here if I'm not prepared.

I go here quite frequently because it's only a ten minute drive from my house. I love the walk and my dog enjoys splashing around in the water. The only cons are the lack of parking and the crowds. On sunny days expect to park far away and deal with high traffic on the trail.

This is a mountain biking trail and all of the rules of the trail are designed to give bikers the right of way. That said, it is a good trail to hike as long as you go at a time when it is not saturated with bikers, otherwise you're stopping quite often to allow them to pass. There are some lovely views around the lake. You have a variety of loops to choose from and enjoy.

Great for mountain biking. Not so much for hikers with dogs.
