This Park has a great trail system throughout. The trails are wide enough to walk side by side so you can stroll with your wife.

This is an amazing park with great paths for hiking. At the end of our day hike, we enjoyed a play at Summerstage as the sun went down. Couldn't have picked a more lovely day in Lake Country!

I kept hearing about this state Forrest, and now I know why. Wide variety of trails (including one paved) to give a good glimpse into this unusual area.

It’s very hilly for a great workout. You can walk for miles around the entire park. The trails are wide so that you can walk siide by side and chat.
