Very fun and relaxing hike. Be careful to not do this in the dark if you aren't familiar.

Great place to snowshoe, able to rent a cabin right off the lake. Cabin includes two bunk beds and electricity,an outhouse in the middle of the cabin area a hand pump water spicket (frozen in the winter ) ,a great trail center with a fireplace and microwave. Overall thick wooded area, beautiful nature. Sighted a few deer on the road ways drive with caution.

Hiked this area this past weekend, Feb 2015. Really nice trail with lots of options to create a variety of trail lengths. It was somewhat cold in the high 20’s so the ground was solid. I have been here is the warmer months and there can be some muddy areas, but not so much in the winter. Flood’s Road is appropriately named as it is often impossible to cross just North of Jabs Farm. It was crossable this past weekend so that saved backtracking or an extended detour.

Great trails for my first time overnight camping several years ago. The trails were well groomed, I hiked for 3 days and saw one other person on the trail and two people fishing on one of the lakes. This really is a hidden gem! The lakes were stunning and it was relaxing to sit by them. The campsites were better than I was expecting! I did not do the far loop so I maybe only hiked 15 miles of the trails.

I did not care for this park as much as other Minnesota State Parks. I was hoping for more elevation changes than I found.
That said, for trail running, it s a great park since it is fairly flat, but not completely without small rises here and there. I was here on a cool, drizzly September day. I did enjoy the quiet hiking through the trees and there was a bit of wind to move the leaves. I find that soothing and part of my nature experience I seek when hiking.
Nice lake to sit near, biking trails through the park (should have brought my road bike) so multiple options in addition to hiking.

My favorite Minnesota State Park of all those I've visited. With perhaps a dozen Mn State Parks within an hour drive, that's not too shabby!
Great hiking with multiple elevation changes, scenic overlooks of the valley, creeks/streams and nice views of the countryside. For those who may not want such a strenuous hike, there is an out-n-back trail, Trout Run Creek trail which takes you near an old WWII internment camp.
As others state, few bugs.

I hiked the Hiking Club trail...6.2mi I believe. Great hiking trail through forested areas, near campground and Albert Lee Lake, grasslands and a few smaller hills. My July hike was pretty warm...probably in the 90s and sunny so bring sunscreen and water as once on the trail, there is little opportunity to stop and get a drink.
Quiet hike in a nice park.

This is an amazing Minnesota hike. Probably the only thing it's missing is a good climb. The landscape is amazing and there are exceptional views on every step. Not too strenuous either. Well worth the travel up the trail.

I hiked during this warm pre Xmas weekend. Although there were some hunters, I was the only hiker there. The trail was good - not much mud. It's very flat. I looped south and west to the erratic (to shorten the loop I went off trail for about 200 feet) and although it's not on the map, it was easy to find with a cell phone. I looped back to Jab's farm and across the levee. Anytime I can get 3 solid hours in with a minimal drive from home (40 min) it's a win for me!
