It’s very hilly for a great workout. You can walk for miles around the entire park. The trails are wide so that you can walk siide by side and chat.

Have been numerous times and it is great! Recently did a 5k and the trails were awesome. Also did a family photo shoot with our dog and it was a beautiful fall day. A little crowded and parking can sometimes be an issue.

It is always delightful to take a walk, see a show in the summer time, or just enjoy some peace and quiet. The wild flowers blooming in the summer are spectacular. The paved bike paths are great for rides and hikes, especially for families.

really well-kept park with great variation of trails and things to do. Really beautiful. The only problem was some of the visitor-made trails can look like official intersections, and it would be easy to get lost or take a wrong turn.

We stayed at the Delafield Hotel just north of this State Park, and came to the park for a casual stroll. The park has nice paths for hiking and the Tower offers a great view of the surrounding area. Definitely worth a visit if you're...More
