Miles of Trails:
7.5 miles in multiple loops.
Extremely easy, single track corridor mixed with road riding within the park. Almost perfectly flat through most of the park. Much of it is chip and seal surface so it‘s good for wet weather riding. It’s also a great place to start your horse out at the beginning of the riding season to get into shape. There are few hazards to watch out for: bike riders and people out for a walk, many with kids andstrollers, you‘ll ride around traffic, under the I-44 bridge, along side of I-44, and along side an active railroad track. Lots of deer and turkey here.
Other Trail Users:
Hikers and bike riders.
