Big Foot Beach State ParkTrail descriptions

Hiking Green trail

The 2.9-mile green trail is the park’s longest trail.  It follows along the parks perimeter for most of its length, taking visitors through the parks diverse landscapes.  Gentle to rolling terrain, easy walking for most visitors.

Hiking Black trail

The 1.6-mile black trail has a mowed grass surface with a few areas that are bare earth. Hikers will enjoy themselves as the trail travels along our southern border past a recently restored prairie and then though a patch of conifers planted by park staff in the early 1980s. Gentle to rolling terrain, easy walking for most visitors.

Hiking Yellow trail

The 1.2-mile yellow trail travels along a mixed surface of natural soils and mowed grass in the western half of the property. Visitors following this trail enjoy the park's mixed hardwood landscape and the woodland birds and animals who call it home. Level terrain, easy walking for most visitors.

Hiking Blue trail

The 0.9-blue trail takes visitors along a natural soil surface path through the park's western end.  Mixed hardwoods open into a small grassland that contains “horse tail” equiseteum, which is unique in the park. The blue trail is generally level, but does have one area that would be rated moderate for its incline.

Hiking Orange trail

The 0.8-mile orange trail is found in the park's east end along the service road. The surface is mowed grass and winds through a mixture of pines planted by park staff in the 1980s and recently restored prairie. Level terrain, easy walking for visitors.

Hiking Purple trail

The 0.6-mile purple trail is located in the park's northeast section. The trail is mowed grass or natural soil surface and circles through an area of pine tree’s planted by park staff in the 1980s. Level terrain, with one small incline rated as moderate.

Hiking Red trail

The 0.5-mile red trail is located near the middle of the park. It travels through mixed hardwoods along a grass covered surface.  Level terrain, with one small incline rated as moderate.
