    Perfect for your Pups!

    The trails are very clean, easily marked, plenty of side trails to cut the main loop shorter if you need a break. Occasionally there's bench view-points where you can sit a spell. On River Run trail, you'll find a couple spots where your pup can dip their toes into the lake or a stream; just be courteous of plant-life, and wait for a well worn path.

    River Run has lots of hills and roots, good for your more energetic pups, Brindle trail is very easy going for about 99% of the time (great for the calming walk back or good for slower/older dogs.) We didnt see any trash bins at the parking lots for poop bags, so carry-in carry-out. It's 3$ per adult, honor system. The people (with or without pets) were respectful/friendly and everyone gave room as to not crowd when passing.

    I highly suggest you give this park a try! (Plus, over by the info board in the parking lot, inside a wooden box is a park passport stamp. Great for an added memory!)

    Nice Trails

    This is a great place to bring your dog on well-maintained trails! The paths are easy to follow and there are different routes you can take. I highly recommend the River Run trail into Bridle Path trail.
