Nice short gravel walk down a path to a sandy beach. It's 1.1 miles if you also walk the entire length of the beach.

Went for a nice trail run here. Parked at the end of Lafayette Rd and ran to the other end of the yellow trail, then took the red-green detour on the way back. Overall, it was a great run with varied terrain. In some places, the roots and rocks required that I walk, but this was a very small portion. The canopy offered lots of shade and the trails were dry given the lack of rain. I only ran into 3 other people and a total of about 6 dogs. None of the dogs were on the leash, but that didn't bother me, as they were all well-behaved. Followed up with a double-dip cone down the road at Gray's to make it a great outing.
The main trails are relatively well-marked at intersections, although there were some other intersections with minor trails that were not. However, with a good idea of the direction I wanted to go and the All Trails app, I did just fine. Will definitely be back.

Feel like your in New Hampshire. Buggy in summer months. Forest trail with nice loop.

Well maintained. Decent amount of traffic. Great views along the coast.

Short. Tight trail. Never feel like your away from the road. But is clean, well maintained and some nice views.

Wide paths - nice views on lake.

Please read Lauren’s review-spot on. My parents live in EG, when I’m home, I work out here a lot. Ideal for dogs, children, picnics (grills provided, and parking), beaching, running on cement, trail running, walking, horse back riding, mountain biking (not terribly extreme), reading a book under a shady tree, kayak launching....bathrooms located around park. Safe for solo people, lots of shade to walk and run, mainly bug free (mornings rough in woods on trails in July, stick to cement...very few cars). The loop I normally do from equine center along water and down to carousel and loop back around is probably 4....
Farmers mkt Friday’s from 9-12.
I swim in July here laps as beach as a guard, and is buoyed off. Easy and shallow to lap swim. Check for closings. Rare but happens with torrential rain.

Love the woman who bequeathed this park. There are so many happy people here daily!!!

Beautiful trail and scenery.. unfortunately, too many off-leash dogs makes it an unpleasant place to hike.

love it. third time here.

Great time this morning. The trail is beautiful and well marked. We did the pond loop and will be back to complete the other trails when it is a little less humid.

So much of this once beautiful place has fallen in disrepair. lots of trash around where haunted hill is done as well as along the blue trail to the top. vigorous climbing up if your looking for some leg work!

could not find the trail. address takes you to private military property.

I would definitely recommend going when it’s cooler. I’ll be back to do more of the trails in The colder months. There were just way to many bugs to enjoy it. The trails were good. I would rate it moderate more than easy.

Lovely little gem through shady woods! Easy and mostly on boardwalks but surprisingly interesting with two extensions on ground. Be careful as ground trails are surrounded by poison ivy.

only 1.5 miles if you stick by pond didnt have full map til return.Wish we had whole map. Nice clear and flat

A nice hike, though a bit buggy in the summer. Surprising to find trails like this around city neighborhoods.

Bring a trash bag and pick up some of the trash that washes up on the rocks.

Needs better markings for people to find the way out.

Beautiful bike ride right by the water. Just recently repaved. My favorite summer activity!

Nothing more enjoyable than the trails &
Greenway on BI!!

easy, 45 min one way without speeding.

The trail was a little difficult for me, so I’d describe it as moderate as opposed to easy. Loved the cute little white bench we encountered along the way.

Great trail. Nice ocean views. Completed a 4 mile route.

The WWII Memorial trail was closed for environmental restoration as of July 26 2018

This trail was pretty nice but takes so long because it's not marked at all with lots of other mini trails in and around it. l spent most of my time looking at the app and backtracking. Unless you don't mind walking around and not knowing where you're going, you will like it, lol. There are roads all around and throughout but still no clue which way to go.

I love doing tempo runs here on the wide trails, usually finding a nice breeze near the water and one solid (albeit small) hill. The trail has sections with lots of small, loose rocks, but footing is good overall. The one watchout is the deer flies in the summer months! Wear a hat and be prepared for them to bother you. My pace was much faster due to them!

Clearly marked trails with maps posted. A nice short loop with well packed trail, many tree roots and rocks, although not technical overall. Remained shaded most of the run and few deer flies despite their prevalence nearby in swampy areas.
