Saint Edward State Park – Hiking for me and playground for my kids!

There are so many different hiking trails at Saint Edward State Park! It is fun to have so many options in terms of forest or beach, playground or grassy fields, and various levels of hiking difficulty. It's not super crowded on week day afternoons, and even week-ends aren't too bad in terms of crowding, especially considering that this is one of the nicest local parks in the area. Many visitors take their dogs along the trails. There is tons of green grass and picnic tables as well as miles of hiking trails all over ranging from easy to difficult. I went down to the waterfront via hiking trail and it wasn't too bad for .6 miles down and back. A restroom at the waterfront is also helpful for those with young kids after the hike down. The trials offer views of huge beautiful moss trees and tons of plants to admire. If you go hiking I'd recommend bringing at least water and snacks and to be sure you wear the correct hiking footwear. On the more advanced hiking trails good hiking shoes/boots are very important since advanced trails can be quite difficult with steep inclines and some heavy mud areas. They offer a lot of parking spaces and an onsite debit terminal to pay for a one day or yearly Discover Pass. I'd definitely recommend visiting this park often.
