I love this lake it's so beautiful

Fun trail! I took my kiddos and dog, and we had a blast. We enjoyed the shady hike, and got a good workout. It was lightly raining, but we barely felt any drops because the tree canopy was so thick. We will w going back for sure. Beautiful flora to look at. I can’t wait to hike it in the fall.

I just walked this trail yesterday with a friend around 8:30pm it was still light out but we had to walk back in the dark it's scary at dark time can barely see who's walking our way I got to my car around 10:40pm I like looking at the the water and wildlife when I'm walking this trail it's calming

Nice, fairly flat trail. Saw a doe and two fawns along the way.

Easy hike, quick. Simple if you know the area, but trails aren't marked and you can quickly hit a dead end. Very littered.

Enjoyed a great, short run down beautiful forested trails. Lots of options though minimal trail maintenance creates a few adventures in trail negotiation. Saw lots of deer.

Hiked this during late afternoon in late July. The trail wasn't marked very well and, if you do not have an actual map, it can be confusing. It isn't maintained all that well and there was quite a bit of litter (which actually helped when making decisions on turns). The view of the interstate, water plant facility, and the actual grave was ok. Also, there were a lot of bugs and I landed some ticks that I found post hike. As far as wildlife, we saw a couple of deer and some teenagers smooching. I liked the grassy area located at the beginning of the hike the best. In all, it was worth it just to kill a few minutes, get some exercise, and mark the trial off the list.

I travel for business and I love coming up to Sioux City to work, all because I get to come walk here at Bacon Creek.
I live out in central NE and we don't have the landscape this park has,.

Steep but a good quick hike

It was a moderate trail with logs that you have to walk over but pretty

I have hiked this trail system many times. Lots of variations and usually encounter 1-2 others while hiking. Many deer sightings and other wildlife.
Used these trails to train for the Appalachian trail in 2016 and it served me well.

Went there with my family and had a great time. The main path is great for beginning riders and there are trails off of that that are enjoyable for the more adventurous.

Had knee replacement surgery a while back and finally able to get the kinks out. Challenging for me with the knee, but made it. Lots of trails to enjoy, and had two chipmunks playing in front of one of the benches I took a break on. They have a bird house with a red-tailed hawk and owl for getting up close. A couple of turkeys darted out, but was a nice hike. Definitely going to make it a habit. Trails are always open, but the center closes

Awesome. The paved trail is a nice little loop with some hill climbing as you circumnavigate the drainage basin. The real gems are the single-track trails that twist and turn around and thru gullies.

My wife and I took this short hike and really enjoyed ourselves. Has a few steep climbs, but overall is an easy trail.

My dogs love to go for a walk to the lake and around it.Lots of great views and have seen some deer and turkeys along the way.Not too over crowded as we are usually alone or just see a couple people along the way.Its close to home so doesn't cost much for gas.

watch out for jerks on the mountain bike trails. lot of self proclaimed professionals ride these trails and if you dont have the jerseys, top notch equipment, etc... they are complete ***holes. kindly moving yourself and your bike off the trail isnt enough for them, and i pride myself on trail etiquette. this is not an isolated incident either, has happened multiple times. Try to go early to beat the extremists. Not saying everybody out there is a jerk....just sayin.......

the trail itself is wonderful. lots of great scenery. it has its share of switchbacks and short climbs. no real large obstacles or jumps. A good challenge for me (beginner -moderate skills).
