Waller Mill Park Trails

Took the lookout tower trail (about 2.5 miles round trip from the parking lot). It was a pretty good walk. The trail was sand and dirt. The beginning 2/3 was extreme ups and downs and the trail was very rooty. The last 1/3 was smooth and gradual. I would definitely go back.

I didn't do this trail yet, however there is a $2.00 parking fee. I am not sure if there is another area to park and avoid the small fee.

Nice park. I enjoyed that there was many trails to choose from and the scenery is awesome. There is also a nice amount of geocaching to find there.

Just got done canoeing around the park. Nice day, plus I was the only one on the water. They should add canoeing to their filter. Had fun going threw the tunnel under the road and watching the eagles.

Regarding the paved path - just as simple and sweet as it gets!

The scenery on this trail is so beautiful. But the interactions with automobile drivers was mostly unpleasant, and made me very uncomfortable. Thankfully, that is just a short portion of the ride!
