Metal cleats made the hike an awesome day

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.

Modérate hike with wonderful views. Spring sun was wonderful

loved the scenery, beautiful landscape, and alot of fun. they also have a natural spring fountain to drink from

Beautiful early spring hike

Incredible view of the lakes! Awesome hike.

We love Wood Lake! The boardwalk is a highlight, as are the great horned owl who live in the park. Very easy walking trails, but awesome to have access to in the city.

Easy walk, very cool to see the confluence of the rivers. Great bird watching, too.

Incredible hike but I wouldn't classify it as easy, definitely more in the moderate range. Lots of hills and climbs, very rocky paths. Our kids had no issues and we all enjoyed it, but it was definitely an adventure. Amazing scenery and nature.

Amazing views and great way to spend a day or overnight.

Great any time of year. MicroSpikes can be a big help in certain spots in winter.

Awesome hike. Trail for the most part is well maintained. Gets hard to follow when you first get to Whale Lake, but just keep going straight. You'll feel the last 1/2 mile in your legs but easily doable. Finished roundtrip in just about 3 hours.

Fun, quick, scenic

great ski trail and race course.

Great hike. Beautiful fall day, overcast, 50 degrees. A number of muddy spots to step through or step around. Lots of rocks and tree roots to deal with. One water crossing to be made, guaranteed to get your feet wet. Five hour round trip for two 65 year-olds including a half hour lunch at the top.

I grew up in these woods and love coming back here with my dog to hike.

Love this place! Had a great time with my kid here. Be a responsible parent and watch your children. There are some dangerous places a child could end up if not supervised. Well kept trails, and very beautiful scenery. Highly recommend!

Love this place for hiking. Unfortunately, people don't realize how beautiful their parks are, or never visit them.

The bridge is out near Jab Farm. We hiked 4+ miles in the snow only to have to turn around and double back so close to the end. Made for an unexpected long day. Crossing the river in the winter would have been a bad idea. This information should be posted at the trailhead. The trail itself is nice and the area is remote and lovely.

There is a trail there. That's about it.

Had an amazingly beautiful ski today. Trail was groomed perfectly after our big snow.

A small park that has a nice short loop along the river that I use for trail running loops or nice park to bring a dog for a walk, or just a nice hike through the woods, I also use for cross country skiing, but is not groomed.

These trails are gorgeous but most of these trails are only for mountain biking. If you want to hike here, for your own saftey, check the trail maps.

The trail is pretty steep as far as trails in the Midwest go. It's beautiful at the top, your staring at two different countries and the largest freshwater lake in the world, how can you beat that?! For less experienced hikers I would advise to just take your time, it's not that bad.

We went snowshoeing (you can also hike or cc ski) through the Ogantz trail in Jay Cooke state park. Most of the trail went along the river with some beautiful overlooks while the last of the loop went through the rolling woods. Trail varied from easy to moderate.

Very serene and relaxing walking trails that meander through woods and prairies. Also, has a nice lake. Great place to contemplate and meditate.
