The Walking Path at Huff Park

The boardwalk is great for strollers and younger hikers.

It goes over wetlands and crystal clear streams - fun to look for creatures when passing over the water.

Please note that bikes, scooters, rollerblades, and skateboards are not permitted on the boardwalks.

Hiking Trail Details

The trails at Huff Park are pretty straightforward.

There’s a loop (about a mile in length) that consists of a paved path with a lengthy boardwalk that cuts through the middle.

The boardwalk also features a wetland overlook. You may spot red-winged blackbirds.

There are smaller, unpaved (and unmarked) paths that shoot off from the paved path if you’re looking for more of an adventure.
