Moraine Hills State Park has marked trails, picnic areas, plenty of parking, ponds. The trails are different lengths with easy walking or biking. You can sometimes see wildlife. There are plenty of birds. Trails and underbrush are well tended.

Took a walk around the yellow loop near the dam. Probably saw about 40 turtles during the walk. That was good to see.

What a great place! I started out hiking (which I love) but ended up strolling because it's just so darn pretty! It's huge so you have a lot of trails/paths to choose from and beautiful natural areas. There are picnic tables throughout, at the pull...More

The biking here can be challenging. The clearly marked one way trails are a combination of pavement on hills and crushed gravel on flats. There are a lot of hills along the trails, so get ready to use all your gears, but all hills are...More
