The marked trail is actually a mountain bike trail. Nice enough, very circuitous, east to miss a turn as I did. Entertaining ski “slope”. Toboggan Run too.

Good mountain biking trail. There were a few trees down blocking parts of the trail but other than that it was good

Beautiful

Great trail that's just far enough away. Decent amount of people but I would definitely recommend!

Great place to go when you have a little time to kill...

The woods were great. A muddy trip it was March though. We did encounter three off leash large dogs that charged us on our walk. So that was awful for myself and my leashed dogs. I would hike it again but because there were many people walking unleashed dogs on the trail I'll leave mine home next time.

This was one of the best walks i have ever been on !! I did not know i had a trail this cool around me with such a beautiful waterfall and pretty lake. I will definitely be going back !
Also want to add this is a really nice, well marked trail that was easy for me to walk. I wear a leg brace and sometimes have problems but this path is well lined with chips or wooden walkways.
Loved it !!

This is a nice little park with some pretty great views. Keep in mind, you need to pay a small fee $2 I think, to park but it is well worth it to help fund the park. As the name states there is a nice nature center there too.

It was a beautiful walk though a bit muddy this time of year which is expected. I also thought there was more than one waterfall however the waterfall was absolutely worth the drive. I'd come here again to explore other paths it was so pretty.

Wonderful trails for hiking. Lots of varieties of plants and animals. In reality there are several different trails, not just the one pictured around the lake. All of them are very well marked. The Nature Center has bathrooms. We saw a number of animals rather close to the trails, including two deer.
