A wonderful rush where there’s plenty of shade and a few long stretches of sun. Bring plenty of water if you’re going the whole way ! I had a good time jogging through, hope everybody else does as well

Always a blast of a track for mountain biking

Got the opportunity to run Pace Bend trails in XTERRA's 10.5K this weekend. Course went over about 90% single track, enjoyed the switchbacks, and flats. Nice trails great area. Would love to camp and run, here.

More of a bike trail than a hiking trail. Camping isn’t the best

these trails are really good but this is a fee Trail Park

unimproved, beautiful, empty

Beautiful area - we did 6 miles in multi-use, but some areas not well marked. Lots of sun exposure - bring water! There's an entrance fee, but restrooms are nice.

A mesmerizing trail. Not very long into the hike and you realize you're in a special place. It's very quiet and offers a sense of solitude. We were on the trail for 3 and half hours and saw one person at the beginning and one mountain biker at the end. The trail winds around a very unique creek that looks magical. All sorts of moss and dead leaves cover the area. There are also these trees that were hollowed out and looked almost like they were sculpted. We saw deer up close, walked underneath a be hive (that was off trail) that we didn't know was there, which we quickly moved away from. One of my favorite parts is that at about half way on the trail (3 miles and change) there is an opening down to the river that you can go sit on the shore and eat lunch. Truly a wonderful trail. I highly recommend it. Make sure to bring enough water and some snacks. There are plenty of shaded areas to take a break at.

Green trail along the water is excellent and they keep it mowed down. Climbing area is not easy.

Better for mountain biking than hiking. Trails not as difficult as I had hoped and not much to see. Also trails could be better marked, the markers that do exist are a little confusing.

Awesome hike today -13 miles on the multiuse trail that loops outside the mountain bike trails, dipping down to the river and climbing area at the end. Beautiful springs running strong after last weekend's rain. Loved the Hogge trail loop and the Pogue Canyon/Kelly Prehn overlooks - just wish the trail went down into that beautiful canyon with the stream!

Did a ~3 mi trail with my 55 year old mom. We drove around the main park road and parked at Tatum Cove. Did the Abbey Road Trail over to Gracy Cove. Walked down to the water and enjoyed the scenery and let the dogs swim. Then took Abbey Road back and hung out in Tatum Cove and watched the boats come in. Even though a short hike, it requires that you go up over the top of the park and then back so had nice elevation with great views on both sides. Will def come back for swimming in the summer.

$10 per vehicle entry fee. Nice trails with plenty of places to park by the water and have a picnic or a BBQ with built in grills.

This was a hike that my wife and I went on for our anniversary. It was a fun time. Pretty easy can be a lot harder depending on how adventurous you are. The river was a beautiful blue green. Very clear as well. Loved it planning on doing it again with our 4 year old daughter.

This trail system was so much fun! Don't be fooled by the "Easy" level. They have a series of trails in Milton Reimer's Ranch Park ranging from green (which was indeed very easy) to a supposed 15-20mi loop rated as advanced (black). They didn't feel that long at all though...but you could just loop it if you want to ride longer. The blues and blacks are a blast with some pretty technical portions intermixed with smooth trails. Worth it for me!

I loved these trails. I brought my dog and we didn't see a single person but it was a rainy weekend. The signs clearly state that dogs should be on leash soo....

Nice trail the first bit can be a little difficult for new hikers or kids but mine did it ok. Only saw 2 groups the entire time. Lots of shaded areas while hiking and some nice views ahold the way. Only thing is the trail markers could be updated as they are getting old. My family and I had a blast and will be back for round two.

I hiked this area last year in the spring. Only a few difficult spots where I had to descend/ascend using hands and feet, otherwise nice and easy trekking. There are several trails, but they're poorly marked, so it's difficult to get a good sense of where you are. Where I began there was no map, and I didn't see one during the three hours I spent.

There's a stretch where people were riding, and I saw a few people with dogs. There is a good range of nature. Wooded areas, prairie areas, narrow trails with great views, wide open bits. I was alone for 99% of the hike.

The trail was ok but it was not marked well at all. We got lost!

Very well managed and enjoyable hike with my family including a 4 year old. Would love to kayak there. Cleanest bathrooms ever seen at a park. Multiple pavilions and places to rest or picnic. Need cash to pay $10 entry.

We took the highlighted route in the app, and while peaceful, it was a bit dull. That said, the trailhead had a great bike repair station set up, and the markers inside the trails were great - even showing difficulty levels, but the trailhead needs a map. Without the app, we would have had difficulty. We do want to go back to camp in the future.

It's a nice quiet camp ground. Nice hiking and bike trails. Primitive camping. The park rangers are super nice and friendly. Will return again.

Very fun. Nice ramps nice open areas and nice technical spots. All around great trail. Too bad I'm totally out of shape.

Easy to get lost in but lots of fun, wear appropriate gear out there, have PLENTY of H2O (minimum 3L, I took 5 and went through 3L's easy after 12 miles and still had more places to ride) Great wildlife! Lizards scurrying all over the road and trails sun bathing, Hawks, red cardinals, roadrunners. Great cliff side views all over the perimeter of the park, great for cl8ff diving although I want able to take a dip because of all the debris from this recent storm we're having. Ps sun block!

Tried the intermediate section, it was challenging, this place had quite a bit of rock, 50%. Some of the challenge portion had some narly rocks, Swiss cheese rocks. It also has quite a bit of ledges and some drop offs. The part I call challenge is the climbs, the climbs are not very long, but I need improvement on my climbs. The trailhead starts at bottom as you climb 2 miles up to the top. If you notice the map it is up /down up /down up towards the top. We skipped the black diamond section. When you make it to the top if you go right past the fence line they have another blue section to do. Once to top , you ride down "the decent." Here you will get packed dirt, til this segment drops you in the novice section. Windy red dirt section that goes on for about 4 miles. The disappoint was that we did less than 10 miles, the MTB trails does not have that much trail options. If we had done the expert section that would have only been about 1 extra mile. The Internet and even the dumb sign at the trailhead have these misleading mileage numbers. Like 15 miles and the green (novice) part being 7 miles when it is only 4. Now maybe there were some unmarked trails we missed? But according to the mtb map they gave at the front center we did the map. Now, when the Internet says 17 miles of trails-- I think they are including equestrian trails and this multiuser trail that circles round the MTB trails hill. You can probably do the entire MTB part in 2 hrs or less. That was my only complaint, the misinformation.
