Dorothy Carnes is split up into two sections - east and west. On both sides, you will get good views of Rose Lake, which usually has a fair amount of waterfowl in it. The western side (on Radloff Lane) has a shelter and about 1.5 miles of trails that go through rolling woods and some prairie. This side also features a turtle effigy mound. I wish the western side had more trails, because I can usually breeze through a hike on this side quite fast. The eastern side (on Jones Lane, off of Banker Road) has the Fort community gardens and the county is in the process of rehabilitating an old farmstead. The trails on the eastern side are slightly longer, at about 2-3 miles long. On the eastern side there are rolling hills through a large prairie, some wetlands and a small portion of woods. Overall, this is a very nice park, but there isn't much opportunity for lengthier hikes.
