Fantastic flat riverside run! Cross the pedestrian bridge and head left (facing upstream) to get going. It stays nice & cool in the day due to proximity to the Little River and abundant shade. Mixed terrain (hard pack, roots, rocks, mud, sand, and some small stream crossings [none more than 1 or 2 inches deep]) as well as some pretty neat geological/historical features make this an interesting daily run/walk trail for locals.

***For extra distance, follow the trail back behind the park and out onto a utility/water/sewage that continues to follow the river on up until you come to the bridge that carries HWY 5 over Little River just past JJ Biello ball park then turn back.

***none of the side trails go anywhere cool, just more or less routes to the nearby neighborhoods.***

***It's not as nice as the single track from the initial part of the trail as you'll notice tire tracks which indicate a shared use with ORV's and the occasional shattered remnants of clay skeet discs along with several discharged shotgun shells. You can also hear the heavy equipment operating just over the river at the adjoining property which is where Waste Management has a fleet of garbage trucks.

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.

Does anyone have any pictures of the current trails. I can't find any online like some of the other parks.

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.
