Nice trail around a lake.

Good trail, nice for a relatively easy walk. Lots of birds to look at. Great benches along the way to rest at. Lots of picnic areas!

Trail goes into a neighborhood and is kind of hard to follow in that area. Not a lot of lake view, but a nice walk

Not too buggy (but watch for ticks, of course) and not too muddy in spite of all the rain. As has been noted, trailhead is to the right of Eagle Ridge, but no one's trying to make it obvious. There was a lot blocked off when we went so we had to walk a bit to get there. There's no signage guiding the way, so try to know ahead of time.

decent. lots of little trails but doesn't take long to complete. went for a trail run and ended up running laps around the parking lot just to hit 5 miles.

The shorter Wirth loop around the lake only is way better. Half of this trail is ski only because wandering through an in use golf course isn’t possible during the warm months

its nice, but walking trails are poorly marked. this is primarily a bike destination. lots of single track one way technical trails for the mountain bike enthusiasts.

they have recently added a few off shoot trails, reducing the free space for wildlife. and the new bridge, while nice is shorter. all in all, i think its actually a step backwards for this previously hidden gem.

Great walking trail with lots of shade

Nice hike along the Creek. Bad news, it is surrounded by homeless campsites and garbage.

Great trail. Great views. Lots of bikes which was a little difficult with my dog. But overall great for an afternoon walk.

Trails are not well marked, paved trails run into horse trails. But nice scenery on the walk, great spots for dogs to take a quick swim.

Some areas flooded, but there’s a way around each of those areas. Overall the trail was amazing.

Pretty hike through the woods on a narrow, unpaved trail. No bugs today, but could have them in the summer. Suggest walking in fall and early Spring.

Nice short trail. Fun walk with kids. Waterfall is more man made. Go venture away from the falls down the trail for an interesting hike. Watch out for broken glass-there seemed to be quite a bit on the trail farther away from the falls.

Nice to go with family not challenging enough with hills. Would come back with kids.

Cool, windy, sandy. Nice walk.

Good trail. Very hilly. Gravel in most places. Definitely need earplugs or something to block the loud 35e freeway on the southeast side.

Light traffic, paved trails. Lots of pretty trees but often along roads and didn’t feel particularly natural.

This is one of my favorite trail running loops in the twin cities. Beautiful views from both sides of the river. The East side is significantly more narrow with steeper elevation changes, whereas the West side is wide & gradual. You can stay along the parkway path against the street, or head down into the woods paths (my favorite).

It’s very pretty, but the trails are narrow and going over the bridges isn’t the most pleasant with the right squeeze and dogs. Very much doable, but there’s a lot of traffic noise for about a quarter of the walk. I highly suggest taking some of the offshoots down into the woods.
