Great Hike. Lots of ups and downs.

nice place to run

Very easy trail. This was a nice way to wind down after doing some of the more challenging trails in CVNP. Some nice bridges and boardwalk along the way.

More than likely won't see a sole on it and is a very relaxing walk.

Beautiful quick hike with lovely views of the north trails on the BFEC property. An old oak tree dating back to the civil war era hangs at the center of the trail.

Just went again today! great for a family walk with the dogs, not very busy at all this time of year. The water is down so you can walk the shore line on the back half.

Beautiful trail, intertwined with other trails too. The beginning leads you too a lazily flowing creek which stems from a really nice big pond. there's meadow, forest, and some nice hills. definitely would recommend.

These falls are very cool ... from the parking lot there is multiple trails you can take, so you could hike for a couple hours or just hike the 5 minutes to the waterfalls.

Good hike, beautiful scenery. Definitely recommend. :)

Very Nice trail for hiking and trail running.

Really pretty trail with a lot of changes in it’s ‘atmosphere’. There are hills, a lot of different trees, rock formations and a decent size creek. I really enjoyed this trail a lot.

Tough initial hill, smooth sailing after that.

great hike. Too close to highway though.

Very good hike and very pretty. The only bad thing is how close it is to the highway.

Highly recommend this trail. Walked further than the 2.1 miles. Other trails to explore beyond this. Best this time of year. First day of fall!

It’s so beautiful back in the trails, there are two, yellow and blue. The blue trail will take you right behind the tree line where the pond and trees meet. I go there multiple times a week!

I have grown up going to strawberry lane for family picnics & squires castle for high school hang outs. Now I have introduced my daughter and dogs to the wonderful trails through this beautiful Metro park area. We just went yesterday and did the loop on the bridle trail around and down to the back of the castle. A lot of incline and tree roots, you really feel like your hiking. Hidden bridges. There are alternates paths you can venture on. Careful not to get lost. If you start the bridle trail right when you get into the parking lot, take the incline and follow the blue flower symbol in the signs. You will wind & twist threw the woods up and down and across bridges. No water back through this trail. Then you make the decline down to the castle. Take an easy route down or do some climbing to get down, your choice. It’s a great way to # getoutside #climbthings #explore. We take our 2 Rottweilers, very pet friendly.

One of my most favorite places to hike through! Gorgeous scenery.

Easy to get lost. Recomend having a compass.

A nice hike for our 5 and 3-year olds with a beautiful lake view at the library. We saw herron, turtles, butterflies and many birds on our walk.

Great Lake loop, there are connected offshoot trails which allows you to cut and wind and loop back around to keep it interesting if you go often. I take the pooch and he loves it. The lake is very pretty and you can see ducks and geese and I even seen a huge beautiful fox on a connecting trail. Do be careful as there seem to be a lot more ticks at this park than others.

A web of trails. Better to the All Trails' GPS if it's your first time.

Good clean trail.

Beautiful hike and beautiful falls.

I love this little hike. No paved or gravel paths which I enjoy. There is a small blind you can sit in and watch wildlife out in the marsh. Not a long trail but it is beautiful in the winter with the snow covering the trees.

Entrance to the Wetlands “area” is on your right just past the playground if you enter at the Library side. Lots of small trails back there that loop back around to the main path. (Main path is an Out n Back from the library to the boat ramp) great for an easy walk with kids/pets etc. You can get a bit of the “trail running” feeling if you utilize the wetlands part, and there is a worn path down to the lake, along a concrete dam, then back to gazebo, but it’s not really “part of it” and is likely overgrown. This whole area should definitely be marked as “easy” and not “moderate”.

Nice trails, Great for walking your dogs. Evan in the muddy season. For it is gravel paths and wooden boardwalks mostly! Not to mention the beautiful nature it has to offer!

A nice quick one. Great canopy.

Trail is marked very well, really enjoyed my hike here.
