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.
