  • Whenever we want to stretch ours and our doggie's legs, we like to walk the trails at Durant. The trails are well maintained and varied. The lake trail is especially interesting as it wanders through the woods, over the two dams and around the lake. Sometimes a snapper is to be seen sunning itself. My brother introduced this place to me in 2014/2015 and I’ve been going ever since especially when I need to clear my head. Very beautiful!
  • Wonderful park to spend the day! Trails winding through lush green forests almost feeling like hiking into a wonderland of prehistoric trees and brush. Great variety of trails and scenic views, and the rangers are always friendly and helpful.
