I love walking around Forest Park - this path is as good as any. Beautiful fountain and structures everywhere.

Paved. If it was unpaved, it’d be safer when wet. This place all slippy when wet my dudes.

Really not bad for a paved trail - a lot of deer hang out in this park, they mostly ignore people. Drive slowly since they cross the roads quite a bit.

Not only boring, but had recently flooded so it was also an eyesore. Kind of a shame - might check it out again if it ever gets fixed up. Go the other direction, up the hill, and explore some of the wooded loops instead.

Walked up on ALL the elk on accident. Whoops. Scary, but very friendly creatures. Give them space and respect their space.

The trail was extremely muddy today . The suck your shoes off type of mud. Otherwise very nice day.

Great trail-kid friendly. We were the only ones on the trail and enjoyed walking along the creek and river, then exploring the bath houses and grand staircase (make sure to go to the top for a view). Needs a bit of cleanup for trash closer down to the waterline.

Great trails. Loved hiking with the elk! Holy and great elevation! Will definitely do again!

Easy, semi-paved. There’s a fair amount of people since it’s in a metropolitan area.

Easy hike with the kids.

Today was a super nice day! The trails had a decent amount of people including kids and animals, but that was okay with me.
