I'd definitely go again to hit all the side loops. Very good for most people but not too much that you couldn't enjoy. Not too much for an experienced hiker but very good for where it is

I really like this park. There are several sets of trails and loops that all connect. Trails are very clear. Terrain is flat. Horses take these trails so watch your step! My favorite is the fact I can take my dog.

Did the main trail, white tail loop. Several side trails I will do next time. Most of the loop has a good trail but there are sections where it is very narrow and overgrown. Only 2 sections of elevation climb and they are difficult but only moderately. Nice woodsy hike. Saw deer twice. Very nice place, especially considering its location.

Beautiful scenery, lots of wildlife. Nice trails, some loops off the main trail extend the range enough to make this a great running option.

The trails have some variation and sections that require good footing.

Great location and what the trails offer are why it's 5 stars in my book.

The trails themselves aren't challenging, but I've found them to be great for photography. A quiet walk along the marsh behind the pond has yielded some awesome frog and snake photos, as well as tons of birds (redwing blackbirds love the marsh). I was able to catch some tadpole close ups and dragonflies along one of the smaller marshy ponds by the parking area. So is the trail itself an attraction? Just depends what you're looking for. Side note...yes, ticks are thick here. I walked out clean, but my friend found (literally) 14 on her when she got home.

Descent trail, new scenery for us. Would not want to do this trail on a hot day - lots of meadow walking. Trails marked okay, but sometimes hard to follow.

super boring and not well marked

Pretty boring trail. more of a horse trail (mowed grass path through a field) then anything else. it was fine, but nothing exciting.

Only hiked it twice, but it was nice. Can't wait to see it in the spring.

A few other loops other than the one listed. Well marked.

good in the winter but avoid after rain because of mud from horses. Not moderate trail. It's easy.

Great place with lots of trails and wildlife. Went on a Sunday and passed 1 person. Beware however there are NO restrooms. Will go back again, will just plan a gas station stop first.

Not a very interesting park. My dog was covered in ticks when we got home.

The trail system is wide, flat and easy to navigate with a copy of the park map. The extensive horse use detracts from an otherwise nice trail that is perfect for an easy walk with children or cross country skiing. There are only a few short sections of single track trail that can be avoided.

This trail is very easy; not even close to moderate.

Great variety of trails!

well, I'm not a fan of sharing trails with horses.....and there were definitely horse hoofs throughout trails. not bad, but not a lot of interest. I picked 5 ticks off after 1/2 hour.

A trail predominantly used by horses that is a little boring to hike. There are only a few hills and many long stretches of flat ground. The trail has markers but my wife and I often found it difficult to figure out which way to go. I would not recommend this trail for hikers but we were nearby visiting family so we gave it a try.

The trail scenery is great! It is primarily a horse trail. I went just after a hard rain to test out my gear. I agree it is a moderate level trail due to the fact that the trail is not marked very well and a new hiker could get turned around easily. There were no other hikers when I went.
Found the place where they have Civil War reenactments.

A variety of trail options make this site perfect for a short walk or a longer hike, covering all the loops.

Beautiful time of year to hike the trails. Colorful crunching of leaves under your boots.

Great for the beginner and kids. Flat with a lot of wooded areas.
