Hard to follow, overgrown, and not an enjoyable run.

Love it, my 'backyard' trail!

Great if you have kids, rather limited otherwise.

Love this park! It’s not a long walk, but it’s in walking substance from my house, so it works out perfectly because that adds in some distance for my dogs and I! Not sure if the dogs are allowed to swim in the little pond, but it wasn’t crowded at all when I went, so I let my Aussie take a dip! This is perfect for when I need to get the dogs out of the house and burn some energy off!

Really easy Hike! I was looking for a quick hike to take my dogs on today to let them blow some energy and this was perfect for it! Trails are easy to follow. Loved that there was water so my Aussie could swim!

Perfect for a short walk with the dogs. They rent paddleboats as well. The lake is stocked if you are into fishing. Several playgrounds for kiddos. Only 4 stars because the picnic areas often have discarded chicken bones and other food items left on the ground from lazy picnickers and my dogs often get this contraband during warm months.

Checked this place out while out of town for Christmas. Nice spot to get a quick walk in. I found the trails to be well marked. They had the map posted in many places. It's a small trail system so I imagine it's difficult to get lost there. I'm assuming it's a popular area during the summer. There were signs of heavy use. On a day like today it was the perfect get away. I didn't run into one soul.

Most trails are either not marked well, not maintained, or both. Overall a very low-effort, low reward outing.

Really easy and fun walk along a paved path around a large pond. Lots to see in and around the water and take the detour onto the island and explore a little too! Great with the kids, even youngsters.

It is a nice place to go. There are a lot of ponds and a river too. I only hiked some of it so far. One of the smaller trails has a tree that needs to be cleared out. I will come back again.

OK the water in the pond was very dirty.

This is a very nice, secluded natural park. I take my well-behaved border collie here and let her go off leash when no one is around, which is quite often. Most of the time I only see one or two other people in the entire park.

Saw turtles again today! Still very enjoyable this time of year.

Looking at the map looked like a easy waypoint . But the trail is not marked well .

This was a great, relaxing hike! I even saw turtles basking in the sun today.

Date 8/20/2016 Nice hike.

Please anyone using this guide after you have hiked the trail please submitt a review.
Thank You.
