The trails are still there, but for now there is some shady things going on, I would stay away. It's not for families anymore.

Really pretty location! Wish I would have been here in the fall to see the colors changing and take some photos. Next time, we'll bring the bikes!

Seven Mile Creek is a great spot to take the bike out for an afternoon. Some of the hills are almost impossible to pedal up but majority of the trails are biker friendly (for those who don't mind actually getting a good sweat going). The foliage in the spring and fall is amazing. There are manicured lawns toward the entrance... More

Lovely fall foliage; good trails for hiking and bird watching in the wilderness. Bring good hiking boots/shoes as some of the trails are inclined and a walking stick would be helpful. Made the longest loop and stayed for 3+ hours; lots of great physical activity...outside!

Nice trails, but signage was nonexistent or rare. Very easy to get lost. At every intersection, just put a sign about where you are, distance to next places and maybe a "you are here" sign. Went a long way out of my way because of poor signage. Could use more benches along the way.

There are many miles of trails that go all over the park - great for hiking, biking, cross country skiing and horse back riding. Usually you can walk without crowds if you go out a ways. There's a beautiful creek you can cool off in. There's tons of wildflowers in the spring and year round.

Great trails to walk or cross country ski, Plenty of wild life if you are quiet while walking or skiing. Kids can have a great time on the equipment. Firewood located in bldg, by the parking area for fires. Great place all year round
