Be aware, when you hit the directions button from the AllTrails app, it takes you to a neighborhood where a trail isn’t obvious. Likewise, when you type the park into the Apple maps app, it does the same but in a different neighborhood. I eventually found the parks entrance on the east side of the park, off Lexington. The trail is kind of hard to navigate at times, and I found myself turning around while following a false lead. However, it does feel like you’re in the middle of nowhere at times and there were lots of awesome mushrooms I spotted along the trail.

great hike! stay on the smaller trails when there's a confusing split.

Fun and challenging intermediate-advanced trails. The trails were very well maintained and the obstacles were nicely built, offering challenging rock fields and some wooden obstacles. The trail loop itself was fairly short, but totally worthwhile if you want to go biking but live in the city!

Great trail for a quick get away from the city noise.

Fun trails with light difficult due to terrain and elevation. Not long enough so had to retrace some paths.

I love the small paths that stem off from the main trail and into the woods.

Pleasant hike in the woods around swampy lakes and ponds. Trails are well-maintained and well-marked. Paved trails are intermittent in western side of park. Slight elevation changes. Park is in the suburbs near MSP so there is decent noise from the highways and airport.

A nice and scenic quick loop. Good for after work hike/run.

This is such a fun hike! Most of the trail is dirt. Tons of birds, frogs, trees, and flowers to look at. It's well located and doesn't feel like you're in the city at all. It was pretty well used on a Wednesday after work including a running club that I had to dodge (but they were very nice). The trail is very well marked and let's you add or subtract from your route to make it as long/short as you want.

As good as it gets this close to the city. Wonderful secluded trails with beautiful wildlife and a great gazebo for a mid hike water break.

it's a great hike, but can definitely be busier near the lake if like me you like a less busy place to relax and watch wildlife.

Trail is just okay. But you can swim and kayak and paddle board (they even offer rentals) in shulze lake which is nice.

Probably my favorite Lebanon loop

I’m a fan

Paths are hard-packed with just a couple low muddy spots. No mosquitos yet but there are ticks out.

So much fun! Stay to the outer loop and enjoy all the lakes!

This is one of my favorite trails. It is very peaceful and serene. Good for all skill levels and something for everyone. You are surrounded by nature and wildlife with the options of different paths.
