Took the family and walked with a little jogging. Pretty scenery and peaceful setting. There is traffic on the trails, but not bad at all. Walkers, bikers and even horse the day we were there. I like the distance and you can tailor to suit...More

My friend and I went here and the trail is beautiful. We love nature and all the different trees than we have here in Illinois.

shady, well marked and wide paths! This is my new favorite place to exercise! Parking at Forrest Meadow park is convenient and there is a crosswalk to get to the trailhead across Meridian Rd. Don't forget the $2 entrance fee.

Plenty of miles of trail riding here. The singletrack is challenging but not too technical with plenty of root features to ride over. The northern connector trail provides the biggest challenge in the first mile or so, in my opinion. Take to the wider multi-use...More

This is a really nice trail system with two loops and a connector. The "upper loop" is where the trail entrance on Meridian Road is (park at Forest Meadows city park across the street) and the lower loop in the woods going around Lake Overstreet....More

I gets hot here and it's nice to walk or run in the shade on well-marked, wide paths. You can take the 5 mile walk where you'll see the occasional biker and horse. The lake is in the middle and is quite peaceful. Just drive...More

Excellent trail in a wooded area (shade!) that leads to Lake Overstreet. Ample parking. Lots of nature to observe -- birds, insects, trees, flowers. Wonderful hike in a lovely park. Unfortunately, our trip was cut short due to inclement weather. We will return! Entry fee...More
