Easy hiking. Beautiful scenery!

The trails are very beautiful. There are so many loops that you could make it a nice long hike, or enjoy a short hike with the kids.

Great for a quick afternoon hike with great views. I was pleasantly surprised how dry the trails were given all the recent rain. I'll be here again.

very enjoyable

Great trails. They do a great job maintaining. Easy trail to run. Pretty flat.

Wide well maintained trail. Good variation in topography. Bike trails look interesting but not too difficult. I will hike these trails again. Good for shorter hike.

have walked these trails numerous times with the pup...always friendly people and well groomed

nice trail... When you get off the mowed prairie trails.

Easy wide grassy trail around an inaccessible pond. Lots of pastures and sun until the Old Dam trail, which was beautiful. Lovely nature center.

I've only done this trail on horseback, and I loved it! Gorgeous to do at sunset & even has a great stretch to canter!

Trail marked well, different levels of difficulty and terrain, and overall enjoyable hike.

This is a pretty good trail. You will most likely see animals.

Great day trip with my dog. Plenty of route options while you're on the trail to shorten or extend your hike. Ate lunch in the "picnic area" after

Multiple trails to explore. Low traffic early. Good trail signs. 5 miles hiked.

Beautiful park with nice trails. The waterside location makes it especially appealing to the person who appreciates nature and generally there are different species of animals to view.

Very beautiful nature-filled trails great for biking or hiking. Easy trails for the more casual rider but some sandy areas and one large scary hill. One of my favorite trails though!

Went skiing here for the first time this week. The trails were beautiful and well groomed and there were even some hills (those were a lot of fun). I would highly recommend it.

We live very close to this trail and because of this we have never hiked here! Our mistake. The trails are very nicely shaded and quite pleasant to walk on for casual hiking. Mosquitoes were a bit of an issue but a little spray took care of that. We walked the two outside loops on a beautiful Sunday afternoon and still only saw a couple of other people, and based on the overall feel of the place we plan to also come back with grandchildren for sledding and do some cross-county skiing, also.

My husband and I hiked this trail with the four legged babies today. It was mostly shaded, very well marked with numerous maps along the way, and a wide trail. There were several benches for water breaks. We noticed a lot of people mountain biking, but there was plenty of trail for bikers to get around us and the dogs. We are definitely coming back to these trails to explore the loops we didnt get to today.
