Trail shared by Edward Hilquist

A meandering crushed limestone trail perfect for walking, hiking, running, and biking.

Edward Hilquist

Features Birding · Lake · Wildlife

Family Friendly The trails here are very wide, about 8-10', which allows youngsters to stop to inspect anything of interest, and the park has several out and back spurs to vary distance.

Overview

The total trail available in this park is approximately 5.5 miles. Parking can be found off Cuba Road on the north end of the park or at the Barrington Library on the south end where a short connecting path through the park leads visitors to the trail.

Description

The trail is crushed limestone and is good for walking, hiking, jogging, and biking (MTB - no road tires). The path goes up and down but with minimal overall elevation gain, which makes it pleasant throughout. The park features both wooded and open areas and is a good area for observing various wildlife such as deer and birds.
