Spent some time here to celebrate the first day of Spring. Off the beaten path, but there were several other hikers. Not very much green yet. Would love to come back in May for the wildflowers.

This trail was perfect for an afternoon stroll.

Nice hiking, if you take care to look out for the paths. Theres a long, paved route with off-road paths along it: you'll have to look for the signs and then follow them.

The trails themselves are not marked, but they're very clear for anyone hiking or mountain biking. I went in a nice day in March and although the park itself was busy, we did not see anyone on the trails. Others have complained about bugs, and we did have a couple ticks despite it being so early in the season. It's the woods, though.

had everything from hills, flat, and beautiful scenery. lengths were good. we did the whole route a bit over 2 hours.

One of the best kc trails! Can get a little crowded, but I love it.

Nice views of the lake.

My grandkids loved the trails most definitely will approve of this trail to friends

I drove to shelter 14 which I easily found using Google Maps. I took the yellow trail to the white trail which brought me back to shelter 14 for a total of 3.3 miles. Sunday morning around 10. I came across a couple solo hikers, about 5 bikers, and a group of 6 hikers. Other then that, I had the place to myself. Narrow enough trails that you would not be able to hike side by side with anyone. Fun natural surfaces. Lots of ups and down, but nothing too big. I felt like I had to watch my step, but at the same time I could enjoy the scenery. nice lake view, but not able to get to it except from parking lot. Trail entrance is not marked (It's behind the permanent restrooms (restrooms are closed in winter)). You quickly get to trailhead which has a map outlining different trails and their distances. once you get in a trail, it's VERY well marked. I will go back to do the rest of the trails!

Good hike. Have done it twice will do it again.

We did the whole loop and it's actually 8.5 miles nice trail though. Bring water
