Hyland Lake Park Reserve, Richardson Interpretive Trail

Hyland Lake Park Reserve, Richardson Interpretive Trail Professional Review and Guide

"Hilly islands of oaks and aspens are intermixed with some representative prairie meadows and dotted with ponds throughout a rather short network of hikes in the less-developed portion of the park.

Though the park has more than 11 miles of trails open to hikers, I selected this hike because it is in the least-developed part of the Hyland Lake complex. The Bush Lake parking lot provides access to a number of trailheads. The paved pet/bike trails begin their 5-mile loops here and take pets, pedestrians, and pedalers in a circle around the open prairie and nestled hills in the center of the park."

This trail is very beautiful and has a great combination of rolling hills, prairies, and dense forest. It isn't too long of a hike (1 and a half hours or so) but is well worth the trip to Rogers. The only negative point I have is the lack of lakes and streams, but if that isn't important to you, I think you'll really like this Trail. Difficulty is probably a 2 out of 10 so a great trail for beginners. Watch out for horses though!
