  • What a gorgeous, crisp fall day for a hike. Hiking was stimulating. So many trails. It's a shame it's so underutilized. Ther are backfields and places to walk your dogs, or cheetahs ( if you have one)...  more »
  • Rented a lovely country house right down the block from this wonderful state park. Great trails for all levels. Allowed to bring my dog Lucy and she loved it too.  more »

  • Nice place always kept up on. Trails are great for all ages. Playground is always my youngest kids favorite. Recommend to several people to go check it out.
  • It was a very nice trail with options suitable for all ages. It had a nice bathroom and large picnic table area. I would have liked a better playground because I went with children who needed some variety after a tame nature hike. The playground was OK but only OK. Biggest gripe that made me take off another star is that the maps and trails were hard to decipher. I could have sworn I was following correctly and yet the trail markers didn't seem to match up with the map. We ended up getting exhausted because an apparent wrong turn made it take way longer than it should have to get out. I was even using my phone as a compass, looking for trail markers constantly, and checking and rechecking the map and yet something did not add up. Fortunately the terrain is forgiving enough that at some points we were able to just make our own way between random trees to other trails that were within sight. Also, there was disappointingly little wildlife. The most interesting life we saw were bugs. Despite knocking off two stars for the difficult map, lack of wildlife, and meager playground, I would still highly recommend this as a hiking trip for families with young kids and beginners. Not too impressive for seasoned hikers but it was perfect for us.
