The trails here are the Explorer Trail (about 3.5 miles total) and the Avalanche Trail (6.25 miles total), but each trail is made up of three loops that are "stacked" so you can choose your mileage. There are paved and off-road trails suitable for walkers, runners, hikers and bikers.

Great park. We rode our bikes on the short paved part and then tried out the Explorer trail. It was getting dark so we ran out of time but what we rode was lots of fun! Coming back on the Explorer Trail was almost all down hill which makes it exhilarating just be careful about running over hikers, dogs or kids! Wear your helmet as there's lots of gravel. We did see a water moccasin in the river. Right down from where people were playing in the water. Yikes!
The best way to find this park in take Exit 9 off of 575. Go towards the outlet stores. At the first light turn left onto Olde Rope Mill Road. Follow it until the end. If you saw the dump trucks, you were on the north side (exit 11) - you cannot get to the park that way - I made the same mistake thanks to the bad address of the park and my Nuvi. Trust me though, 575-Exit 9 - First light, first left. EZ!

The trails are well kept and quite shady. I cant seem to find a map of the trails though.

Great for trail running. Not a good hike if you're looking for views, but good for a shaded run. Very diverse. I took my toddler on a walk and he loved it but tuckered out about halfway through.

Decent park and trail system that has grown and improved quite a bit over the last few years.

There is a paved trail that is good for any use and is kept clean enough you could easily push a stroller or use a wheelchair. The park also has a good amount of off-road trails better suited to mountain bikes but also suitable for hiking.

The Little River runs through the park with some small falls. You'll frequently see people on the river in canoes or kayaks. There is also a deck/platform for viewing the river or fishing. Another recent addition to the park is a bridge that crosses to the north side of the river and allows you to actually visit the ruins of the old rope mill.

There are also a few goecaches hidden throughout the park.
