I’m looking forward to coming back here when it’s cold and there aren’t any ticks. I have never in my life been so covered before. I turned back after a mile because I was sick of battling them.

Visited on a hot summer day. Many beautiful sights, but it can become a bit monotonous. It's a very peaceful environment. Great for birding as well. Overall it's highly reccomended

This was a quick and easy walk/hike around the water with my four young kids before we played at the playground. We went in the morning before it got too hot and it was perfect for us.

There was a huge section of this about a mile in that was totally flooded out. Literally turned into a big pond. I doubled back through the equestrian trails and was able to connect up further down the trail. Added some distance though. I finished at 11.1 miles. That washout was really the only bad part of the trail. There were a couple trees over the trail in the equestrian trails, otherwise I’d just echo what others have said about the trails not being that well marked. Had to turn around a couple times after I realized I wasn’t on the posted trail anymore even though there was still trail ahead of me. This trails probably 80% non-shaded, so plan accordingly. I did it on a hot and sunny day and wished I had put on sunscreen and brought another bottle of water.

A very nice, simple walk around the lake! Pretty short so great for a beginner like me. I personally didn’t see any wildlife but I definitely heard a lot of birds. I was the only person on the trail, and there were only a few people at the lake. I imagine this is probably a good spot to get away if you want to be alone.

Excellent little trail. Very secluded. Some parts were muddy as it had just rained. And some places were overgrown a bit but definitely a doable trail. Will be going back.

Short and sweet little hike around the campground pond. A lot of families out fishing with their children. A few educational signs to help teach the kiddos about the wildlife along the trail. The bridge along the pond is beautiful!

Very smooth trail. The mud is all dried up. Not much of a goal or end point in my opinion, but the trail, trees, creek, and wildlife were wonderful! Several people had their dogs along and I think kids would like the little hike to the teepee near the end. 6-1-2020

This is a trail that would be better suited for early spring hiking. The trail was quite narrow with a lining of poison ivy on either side.

Great short, mostly shady trail. A steep section towards the beginning. We took half of the Hidden Prairie Loop on the way out and the other half coming back. A small section was single-track but most was wide enough for two.

Best trail I have hiked in Iowa thus far. Great views scenic and challenging. Overgrown in some areas, big climbs at each trailhead.

Easy walking trail. 2/3 is packed gravel, the rest is paved. Can be very busy with bicycles, joggers and other walkers, especially during pleasant weather. Decent views of lake and river. Wildlife and wildflowers likely. Probably best suited for autumn

Hidden gem...though loop trail not marked. Good thing for my all trails map! Have been coming to Sioux City for years to visit family and never thought to see what hikes are available. Husband and I thoroughly enjoyed this hike. We parked at the equestrian area which is where the trail appears to start. Easy to get turned around so would suggest you download your map that we had connectivity the whole time. Gentle slope‘s lots of shade with sunlight peeking through. Nice way to see many areas of the park

Great trails! Our dog loved it!
