According to the posted trail guides, the park contains approximately 6 miles of hiking and biking trails. That being said, the signs at the trail-heads are pretty worn out and in need of repair, so pick up a trail guide at the park entrance. The trails are very well marked, and several wide, well maintained trails make up the parks trail system. Some of the best prairie hiking in the area. Lots of marshland views along the Badger and Gold Finch Trails, while the other trails have great forested routes. Great bird watching, if your looking for that. Most of the trails pass through hidden picnic areas, so there is most often water available, along with camp type restroom facilities. BONUS: No admission fee is charged to get into the park, however campsite fees are charged for overnighters.
