Stephen's State Park

If you aren’t looking for a long hike and are more into short trails, playgrounds and picnic areas, you’ll still want to check this park out. From the small parking lot, take a short stroll down the red trail along the river – there is a bridge to cross and you can score a picnic table on a little island of land. There are a few small trail loops and a couple of playgrounds.

10.2 miles, moderate trail surface. Lots of level woods roads, with some steep sections.There were a lot of large areas of standing water… unsure if that was just because of the recent heavy rain or not. If you head there in the summer… have bug spray handy in case it’s mosquito central.

There is only one viewpoint on this loop, and that is if you go all the way to the fire tower. The rest is mostly pleasant hiking, on a lot of woods roads. This trail is multi-use and we expected to see bikers, but we didn’t see a soul on the trail the entire day. Perhaps when it warms up a bit, it was still quite chilly (with one stubborn tiny pile of snow near the parking lot!)
