This is a nice nature park, but the true beauty of the property is found off the paved pathways and onto the forest covered trails. Specifically, look for the Butterfly Trail and Wapiti Trail. You’ll walk through quiet shaded forests and pass through some rock formations. Portions of the Trail are overgrown and muddy when wet, so be prepared and all is well.

Made my first visit today and have an overall good impression of the place. I went for hiking and took my dog on-leash. It is beautiful land with a river, streams, steep ravines, rock outcroppings, old pasture fields, disc golf course...just a lot of variety to offer. And it is all very well maintained! I went after a lot of rain so there weren't tons of mountain bikers, but everybody I met along the way was polite and made room for others coming by on the typically narrow trails. My main gripe was actually with this AllTrails map that does not properly follow the trail it lists (or sometimes any trail at all) so I ended up doing a weird hybrid backtracking trip. If you go and intend to do the west loop, you will have to just follow the trail signs, which are generally fairly well marked. One tip would be to go clockwise if you are starting out in the morning since there are long open field stretches toward that side which get hot by the afternoon after you are already worn out.

Least favorite trail I have done in awhile. App directions are wrong- navigate to Minnie Ha Ha park directly and just follow the signs to the trailhead. Part of the trail has no shade. There are some beautiful wildflowers (in late May), and we did see some deer, but mostly the terrain is all the same- flat, not lots to look at, and parts of the trail are very close to the highway so you have traffic sounds. It’s probably a good trail for bike riding or a flat run, but not great for hiking.

Always good

Stocksdale is OPEN NOW 052320 SATURDAY Enjoy the trails. Like Appalachian Trail

Nice shady trail through the woods with a wonderful view when you get to the bluff in the middle. A little muddy and quite a few piles of horse poop in spots but otherwise a peaceful, short trail.

Did part trail cut off to devils ice box. Way too crowded so had some time away from people. Nice park. Really nice cave attraction

Trail is a nice pleasant walk, a little muddy since we followed a rainstorm yesterday. Caught glimpses of the lake, but not real clear view unless you go down one of the various paths.

Really like this trail. The gravel path is good for a nice walk and there’s also smaller paths branching off. Saw a deer hanging out watching us today.

Great trail with many creek crossings. Lots and lots of families.

Maintenance roads mostly. First leg ends at private property. We took the second leg to the creek then headed back to our vehicle. Pretty nice walk.
