This is a wonderful hiking and biking trail about 10 minutes from downtown. For the visitor it is challenging as the map is pointless (can no one make a map that is clearer?) but go with someone from the area and they will show you....More

Whether you are on outdoors person or not, this place is good for all.. There are different trails that circle the lakes and or dam.... Fishing spots that are relaxing and not packed with others... Or even for photography... Great backdrops..

This is a really nice hike. I wouldn't recommend it for young kids (5 and under), this biggest reason being that the mountain bikers were fairly rude. Out of the dozen or so that practically ran us over, only one announced their impending arrival.

My daughter went to SSU and has spoken of AnnaDel State Park for years. I was finally able to visit. Think a blend of covered, tree lined trails and then open, Live Oak spaces. We hit the Lake and the dam and loved it, though...More
