Very easy trail with gravel and a wooden boardwalk over the swamp area. Mixes with a couple other small trails along its route. Fun to learn the trees of the area with plenty of plagues and info. Nice places to sit on benches and read!

This one was an adventure. We could hear the monkeys hollering and banging.

Beautiful park. Very well maintained. Good traffic, felt safe. Clean restrooms. Plenty of benches to rest. Beautiful pond. We counted 9 ducks today and 1 Crain. Path around park is asphalt. Stroller friendly. No dogs. Pond is catch and release. Family friendly. Children’s Play ground is well maintained and close to track. Zero problems. We will be back.

Some cracked sidewalk makes for sore feet, some shaded spots. Nothing special, just a standard park.

Good trail here. I'm not sure why this is rated easy when 9 miles of the trail is Kincaid Loop which is rated moderate. The correct path is Wild Azalea -> Lamotte Trail -> Kincaid Loop. I'm not sure what Lamotte is rated but I would guess it's probably moderate. All in all, you complete Lamotte Trail (twice) and fully complete Kincaid Loop. Kincaid Loop is where it got tough for us. We did 10 miles one day, camped, and then hiked out the next day. Good test for myself and my brother, both beginner hikers.

It was over before it began. What a waste of time driving here. If you want a walk go somewhere else, this is a joke.

More of an exercise trail not really a hiking trail.

I went in September it was dry and had only sparse bugs. It was a nice stroll but I cant wait to come back with my bike. if your looking for a real connection with nature though you might walk away disappointed because of all the garbage, the oil pipeline warning signs and noise from the nearby airport. Next time I'll probably go back with a garbage bag to help clear out some of the plastic bottles ect. please take your trash with you.

Even though it was stated to be accessible year round it was not 11-16-18. There was a locked gate prohibiting entrance.

spend a few hours walking the trail on this rainy day. trail is beautiful this time of year!

Great trail run. Beautiful scenery! Absolutely loved the GIANT BAMBOO!!! Need more parking, lot full due to people fishing at the end of the railroad trail. Will return.

A lot of construction going on but still enjoyed this out and back at the end of the hardwood trail. Fishing at the river, there are benches and port a pots. The couple little hills on the trails provided just enough resistance to get me sweating. Saw quite a few people walking along the tracks.

Great little trail! Especially great for kids. Really feels like you are in secluded wood trail but not too far out from town. Pavilion at end is great place for picnic. Lots of cute bridges and stairs. Really well marked.

Family jog around long trail and then a solo run. Stroller friendly. Even brought the old dog. Trails are improved and easy to run on. Well trafficked. Plenty of wildlife to see. Highly recommend.

Love this trail. A Mountain bike trail very well kept and / but much travelled. Be aware of the mountain bikers and travel the trail in reverse like they suggest.
Scenery is great and overlooks the River at one point.

Nice trail. Stroller friendly. Made for a good run.

Absolutely beautiful trail. Clean. Family, elderly, kid, stroller, dog, fishing friendly. Plenty of places to fish or picnic without being right next to other people. Benches along trail.

My husband and I had great runs on this trail! We run separately due to speed differences and both got off trail and turned around in different spots. I would like to see more trail markers for newbies like myself but getting turned around just adds to the experience. We live close, we will revisit this trail many times! This trail is not stroller friendly but is kid friendly.

Short trail along river off from boardwalks. Goes out and comes to a point on river then quits at riverside. Slim trail and brushy. Beware of snakes and alligators at creekside.

Trail running. This trail is very nice. The trail head starts as a nice open developed path, within a mile it slims up a bit but still wide enough for the few families with younger children to walk thru and complete. The back half southern part had a few mud spots and a random log across the path from the recent weather but other than that, nice. The third part of the trail goes back upon the raised wooden walk and over the swamp to beautiful scenery, a small river and much wildlife. Even seen a decent sized gator out for a swim. This is the longest of the three trails to enjoy in TSP. This trail isnt far from my home, 15miles or so, so we will return.

Beautiful trail. Stroller friendly. I use a bike stroller, my tires had no problem going through mud and over tree roots. Will be a little tougher for a traditional stroller but still possible. Few mud puddles but easy enough to go around. Nice views of the river. Dog friendly. Family friendly. Trial ends on the boardwalk, you can cross to the right to go over the river or go left for nice elevated views above marsh lands.

The trail that is marked here can only be completed if you have a boat and a very good set of boots. Why is this even on this sight?
Ps, the closest state park to this location is probably 15-20 mi away

Beautiful architecture! Music and good food everywhere!

Easy.. beautiful view of the river .. too short

Over the past year I have ridden the trail totalling a conservative estimation of 300 miles on my electric skateboard. If you are biking, or travelling at speed, please mind the morons that will blindly walk into your lane while having ear phones in. Also mind the intolerant geriatrics that allow their dogs to run after you and act viciously in the River Ridge section of the trail.

This was a very simple, yet quaint little trail. It felt like I was far away from civilization breathing actual fresh air. Lots of benches for resting points so it's a great trail for any and all ages. I'd go back if I was near the town and needed a quick walk in the wild.

More of a hunting trail. Overgrown and marked with blue diamonds spray painted on the trees. Stopped a mile into the trail to turn around.

My go to trail. It’s 19 miles. I like campsite 1 &3.

live not for i hike at least once a week when weather is nice I see deer squirrels pigs read fox and if you lucky you may see and otter lot of ducks in the winter when you get next to the lake

awesome trail for hiking or offroad
