This park is a little bit out of the way but it is nice and secluded. Most people who come here stay at the campground and fish because they have a very nice lake here. We have been a few times to Geocache and hike. Their trails are much more rugged than those at Mounds Park so it's nice to have a bit more of a challenge. The trails however are really meant for mountain bikes and are not designed for walking. The trails are narrow and they are choppy in parts. If you are going to hike the trail, be sure to wear sturdy hiking boots or shoes or you will regret it. The area is very clean and it is not crowded.
My only complaint is that the full trail is very long - it is 10 miles of up and down. Once when we were there, we were half way around and it began to rain - then pour out of the blue. The problem with this was there are NO "escapes" to the trail whatsoever. Once you are in, you are in it to the end and it is a single, one way trail. And I am talking a 4 hour hike here for two able bodied experienced hikers. Almost every other place we have hiked had some way to get off the trail and onto a main road in the event of an injury or rain or whatever. This is not the case here, so if you got hurt help would have to come the way of the trail just so you know. On the day we were there and it began to rain, the trails became a slippery mud pit in no time and it seemed like it took forever for us to get back. Next time we might take bikes just in case.
