Busse Woods is a good place to go fishing or just for a walk. The only thing that has disturbed me is the large picnic area where a lot of alcohol is present. Some of those crowds are unfriendly to people not of their own racial back ground. The lakes are good for a paddle with your canoe or kayak.

The trail system here is mostly paved, but it's surrounded by woods - separated at certain points by groves and meadows - making for a fairly easy but rewarding hike. Personally, I'm a walker, not a bike rider, and there happens to be a nice dirt path through the woods where you can really find some peace and quiet (except... More

This is a beautiful place to do all those things. You can even rent non-motorized boats there. We brought our own kayaks. In the spring and early summer, it was a great place to kayak. As the summer wore on, the stuff growing in the water became excessive and you're wrestling with those plants wrapping themselves around your paddles as... More

There are a series of trails here, paved, that are just lovely. Peaceful and serene setting, with miles and miles of trails. The longest is 7.3, traveling the circumference of the park with several other options. Plenty of restroom facilities and water along with spots with picnic benches. Lots of open space and some well spaced trees for a hammock.

Busse woods is a nice 8 mile-ish loop. It has hills and flat land so a good mix for biking. The two bridges over Higgins offer a challenge. It gets busy (and hazardous) later in the day so be sure to go early.

Plenty of parking available at several locations. We took our bikes and went for a ride with a nice mixture of sun and shade with plenty of open space.
