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.

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.
