Description

Cherokee Park contains a 5 mile loop of rough dirt trails that meander across the entire length of the park. It's great for hike training, trail running, or mountain biking. The majority of the dirt track is wooded and travels to most of the interesting park sites including Dog Run (Baringer) Hill, an archery range, and the tennis courts.

There is plenty of parking, and the trails are very easy to access, although you may need to search for trail segments since some of them do not exit/re-enter exactly next to each other. This loop is made of many combined trail segments.
