I love walking around this lake at Midlothian Mines Park. I see a lot of dog lovers walking their dogs and some people fishing and feeding the ducks too. They also have concerts we can attend. There are many parents with little ones enjoying this...More

We went to this cool park to stroll the nice paved trails, great boardwalks, and interesting coal mining historical sites. It was an easy walk pushing a stroller and wonderful for hunting Pokémon- awesome stops too!!

This park was unexpected and wonderful. If you are looking for a place to stretch your legs after a long drive I would highly recommend this park. You could walk around the little lake or go underneath the tunnel and keep going. I went with...More

I took an out-of-town here recently and was disappointed in the brevity of our visit. It is historical, but not much left of the original artifacts. Shady and pleasant walk around a pond. A nice hour or two.

We walk here frequently with our dog. The path around the small lake is a nice walk, but be sure to take the tunnel to the other side to see the ruins of the Mid-Lothian Mines. The park is well maintained and there have been,...More

We walk these trails several times a week because it's close and it's very nice. It's about the distance we like to walk so it works out well. Nice trails and the lake is always pretty.

Our family went here for a hike and really enjoyed looking at the old ruins of the mine. One issue I had was the extreme smell of feces (dogs, I assume) as I walked the trails. There was a dog clean-up station at the beginning...More

This is great for walking. If you like the sun walk around the lake. If you like shade or it gets to hot walk under bridge where the old mine is and it's got a lot of shade. Safe enough to walk alone.

Lots of historical tidbits that I never knew were in my own town! The tour guide was very informative and loved answering any questions any of us had. The trail was shorter than I thought it would be, but overall, I really enjoyed my time...More
