Lovely trail!

Perhaps I didn't see it but main area is kid friendly with a tennis court, basketball, picnic and playground for kids. Trail is along back end crossing roads but also has tons of scenic sewage lines/pipes which isnt scenic at all. This is what ruins it for me. Could be a nice paved path for bikers or joggers uninterested in taking photos

Easy trail through a forested area and views of the creek.

Great easy trail that’s perfect for family. The back half of the loop has lots of roots to be careful of.

Very easy walk in a wooded area.

An excellent trail for a leisurely stroll through the forest. Informative nature center on site adds to appreciation of the uniqueness of the site.

Paved trail great for all levels. Good way to walk off dinner.

Love this walk. My sister lives in the neighborhood and we walked it the other day!

Nice but it is private property and your suppose to be accompanied by a resident of the neighborhood. So don’t make a special trip.

Clean park, nice trails, friendly people. Will definitely go back.

It was a fun trail to run for me and my dog. This was my first trail run and I thought it had some varied terrain, but nothing too difficult. There is canopy cover for most of the trail, so it’s doable even in the heat. The lake is pretty and there were not that many people on it. I’ll definitely be going back!

Great trail, my wife and I loved the lake loop. Would recommend for any skill level. Great place to hike in the heat since most of the trail is covered by trees.

This park is one of my favorite parks. It has some back trails that are great for solitude with your dog. The trail around the lake is a bit more rustic with beautiful views. There's usually always events happening at the park on the weekends so it can get a bit crowded. If you looking for some solitude it's best to visit during the evening, week days. If you want to get off land you can rent a canoe, paddle boat or kayak.

Beautiful trails! The houses are beautiful. It’s amazing that it is a city park. Great escape for mid week outing. Perfect to train for rucks.

My favorite for a nice stroll around the lake- today was a little disappointing since part of the trail was submerged due to the heavy rains last night. It is well taken care of by the city and there’s lots of things to do!!

This is one of my favorite spots!

Nice short trail leading to the overlooks.

Nice trail, looks family and dog friendly. Did not do the Pirates Cove section, instead went over US1 to the end of Hinshaw.

Pretty trail. Relatively flat with a couple of tiny hills but very bumpy. Pretty crowded in the parking lot but the trail was fine.

nice 2 mile loop, woods right in town. but keep eyes open, lots of roots on dirt trail. I added 3/4 of Pawpaw trail to get my 45 minute walk in.

Did it combined with Swift Creek Greenway. Nice walk with the creek and lake throughout.

greenway goes back and forth over busy roads . sometimes hard to follow. part along creek is scenic. we started at Bond park. paved.

This is a very short overlook trail off the Beech Tree Cove Trail. Unfortunately the view from the top of the bluff was limited when I visited in Late September. It definitely would be better after the leaves fall.
