Explore easy trails with a lot of shade.
The trails at Riverbend Park are more like a wide, dirt road for the most part. This is a pleasant, shaded loop with the chance to see wildlife.
Riverbend Park is 666 acres and has many trails that loop and intersect with each other. Most intersections have signs and you can always get a map at the office before you start. Bikes are allowed on the trails and some sections allow horses.
I did 4 miles my first time there (the route mapped here) and another 4 miles my second time on completely different trails. I still haven't covered all the trails. I saw deer both times I visited which makes this one of my favorite local hikes.
Overall, the trails are wide, level, and well-maintained. The equestrian trails have some grass growing on them but are also wide. You get to see wildlife if you are lucky. I've seen deer, raccoon, rabbit, squirrels, alligators, and a variety of birds.
