“Amazing Place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

There is no dislike! I ride the woods all the time and I have walked it. Maybe maps could be better but I have learned them. I wish they would have about the treasure boxes in there. Children love looking for them and I still only know where one is.

“wonderful place for long walks with friends, your dog or on horseback”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

Wonderful natural woods with natural flora and fauna. Huge area with many paths. Take a map or you'll get lost. Great for horse riding with many bridle paths and many paths for humans and their dogs.

“Great Hiking”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

Hitchcock Woods is the largest urban park within city limits in the United States. It is an equestrian park with trails everywhere. Hikers must give way to the horse and riders. On Tuesdays and Saturdays you might even get a glimpse of the Running of the Hounds.

“Hike in the middle of the city”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

Great for walking or riding horses. Dirt paths lead through completely undeveloped woods. Grassy areas to relax & have a picnic. Sand River runs through it, more like a brook, with clear, cool water.

Lsrgest urban forest around. Nature walkers and birders will love it. Horse riders and joggers will too.
