I really love the walking trails in this park. You can hit the pave trail or the gravel trail. I like that you can really get a nice work out (walking). There are a lot of hills through out the park that makes your work out a little different than just walking a flat trail. Depending on the time that you go (or if there is an event in the park) it can get a little congested. I like going early in the morning. But whenever you go, you will enjoy yourself.

Easy and fun! Lots to look at and interact with. Has a nice paved trail but also more of a woodsy trail all with fun sculptures. Very cool.

Easy walking path. Not much to look at when you’re not by the river. Would be a nice bike path.

I’ve been going to this park my whole life and had no idea this trail existed. Like another person said, it’s more of a walking trail than a hike, but it’s pretty and not typically very trafficked.

The trails you know and love are still here! You just have to get to them. Come hike them! At first I thought they ruined the trails. They didn’t. The people who said they ripped the trails out are mistaken. They did not rip them out. They are both still nestled in the woods where they were. The other reviewer that said this is not the place for natural trails is also mistaken. Take the lower trail head to just last the cave. On the left there is a drain, before the bridge, the trail starts there. You can also find it in a few other places along the paved path.

Easy trail, loved the ruins of the fort. Very pretty area, interesting history.

really pretty! loved it

Please come home these trails again! We need to hike it before they over grow. I would recommend parking at the lower trail head. I made the mistake of parking at the upper. It’s a hot walk back up. Park at the lower trail head and stick to the path. Once you pass the cave and before you hit the bridge, you will see a drain to your left. There starts the path to the inner and outer trails. Wear bug spray!

Lots of fun things to look at and discuss while walking/hiking.

Quick hike on a humid spring day. Lots of shade and greenery. A little much for my small dog but we made it through

Flat easy with multiple stops for traffic. Nice views. Will repeat.

Nice little walk by the waterfront. Good amount of people out and about.

Great place to walk, run or bike.

Nice park but not user friendly. Signs are not very clear. But really cool old forts and nice area for dogs . By the river

Great stuff with the kids well maintained easy trails with art!!!

Great place for a short hike with wide easy to follow paths for small kids or those less able but the park also has some great trails back in the woods that are well worth exploring. It's a relatively small park so don't expect endless miles of hiking.

Cool art work but not a hike. Fun for a once and a while walk through.

Lots of different trails from paved to bluff side.

There's the Arch! Looking forward to the development to be completed.

Tourists and residents alike I suggest getting a Forest Park Guide book or read on the history of the park/area before embarking on park exploration, this will make the experience more enriching.

A nice, flat pavement for a run, walk, or bike ride as short or as long as you’d like! 60 degree weather in January made this perfect today.

One of our favorite spots in town to get away & grab a quick hike.
