Awesome trail! Great hill and rewarding view at the top. Be warned that it is not accessible at this time, though, due to construction on Flying Cloud Drive.

Beautiful scenery. Nicely shaded. Well paved the whole way.

not a lot of people out, entirely paved, freeway noise obvious for half of the walk. some parts very wooded.

Very nice paved trail. Houses lining one side for a large portion. Pretty quiet. Well-maintained.

Nice asphalt path - . A bit concerning when those few bikers come speeding by like they are competing in a race with nobody on foot to share the path with. I suspect when someone gets struck this would not be the authorities first such 911 to Starring Lake :(

Great trail. My dog loved it too. You really cant get lost, all directions loop around back close to the parking lot.

Very nice, short path. Mostly tree/woods covered.

great trail for walking with our dog. also good for biking.

Great trail! We brought our dog and she loved it. Fairly shaded with tree cover. Beautiful scenic areas. Highly recommend

This isn’t really a trail. It follows, sort of, the frisbee golf course. Don’t get me wrong, if you are there to play frisbee golf it is a quite beautiful course. If you are there to swim, really nice too. It is just this hike that isn’t really a hike that I am rating 1 Star.

Awesome trails that had pretty good elevation gain over short distances. The Stinks (dog) was tuckered out toward the end. The “Big Woods” have a rich history that you can read about along the trails. I wish it was a longer hike but it was fun!

Lots of route options with several small loops that link together. A great nature route with overlook views at the top

Some great inclines on unpaved trails. Kids able to climb fine. There are several microclimates in the short walk... woods, sandy, prairie. Great overlook of Shakopee. Bring bug spray and sometimes rain can leave a soggy trail near the parking lot.

If you want to run into nature, here’s the place. Surprising as 1/2 of the lake is surrounded by houses. We’ve seen the usual animals but have run into eagles, turtles and even a mink. Trail is fairly quiet though some bikers go too fast with all the blind corners. Large playground off of Dell Rd and smaller one on north side in neighborhood. We use the playground as an incentive to get our kids to finish the 3+mile hike without too many complaints. Nice quiet spot for a snack at the top of a hill on a couple big rocks on the south side. Enjoy!

Usually crowded but relaxing through the woods. Seen bald eagles on multiple occasions. Great park bench on south side to sit by the water and watch the kids throw stones for a couple minutes. Husband goes fishing from dock but can be weedy. Our go to quick walk and scooter ride park.

Did not expect to find a trail like this in this area! Great mixed terrain with some awesome (bigger) hills, beautiful woods, great prairies, and overlooks.

Good trail close to home in Eden Prairie.

Great hike. Some steep ups and downs, but you're rewarded with nice overlooks.

Great amount of elevation over a short distance. There are no overly large climbs (200' or more). Good scenery; feels secluded even though it's in the city.
Would be nice if it was longer, but multiple loops works pretty well on this one if you mix up each loop.

We really liked this trail. Lots of elevation change and beautiful views. It's not the longest trail but worth it. It's also very close to the Cities.

We only did the short trail...Nice trail that had a good incline and nice view. Recommend bug spray and hiking boots,there are muddy spots. I look forward to going again and doing the longer trail.

My fiancé and I enjoyed scenic views of Eden Prairie along wildflower lined trails. An uphill hike mostly, but lovely in early July.

More of a moderately difficult trail, but nice views!

Great views! Trails could be marked a bit better in some places.
