Three hiking trails are ideal for exploring the park's swamps and marshlands. The park's lake and two small ponds are perfect for nature study. White Loop Trail is accessed from the far end of the picnic area covering a distance of 1 mile. Lake View and Pond Run trails are accessed from the first picnic area and explore the lake's perimeter then venture over making a large loop around the two ponds and swinging back down to the picnic area.
This scenic route, which skirts pristine nature areas, is a favorite stopover for thousands of spring and fall migratory waterfowl. Mallards, wood ducks and Canada geese nest in the marshlands each year. In addition, woodcock, rail, gallinule, snipe, heron and bittern are often sighted thus attracting hundreds of bird watchers to the park and luring them onto the trails.
Locals enjoy jogging the 3 miles most of the year except in winter when they slip on their cross-country skis and take to the trails.
Directions: From Streetsboro, OH, From Interstate 80 take Aurora-Hudson Road north to reach the park entrance. Trails are accessible from the picnic area.
Distance: 3.5 miles
