I visited this park on my own and was happy to find it is probably my second favorite metro park now. The trail I walked on was gravel and some dirt and super shady the whole time. The trail it’s self was comparable to high banks without the hills. I did a small 2-3 mile loop but the rest of the park trails are mostly paved multipurpose paths. There was plenty of area for picnicking as well.
