Kineowatha Park‘s trails are a bit tangled up with a disc golf course, making the forested trail system a bit hard to figure out if you’re here just for a walk. I think it’s easier to navigate the system if you’re following the course with a frisbee, because that you you can just follow the numbered baskets. The trails aren’t blazed, either.

If you visit the park to walk—and there are many other reasons you might visit, including a public swimming area, basketball courts, tennis courts, horseshoe pits, etc.—I recommend trying to do a walk around the perimeter of the park—it’s just about a mile. And if you’re short for time, stick to the right side of the park (if you’re looking at the lake), so the northern side of the park.

The nicest trail starts down by the swimming area. It follows the shoreline, and then heads back up through the woods toward the park entrance, depositing you at the baseball diamond.

Directions: Kineowatha Park Drive is off High Street, close to the downtown area. You can catch the trails at several places, including right by the swimming area. The trail heads off into the woods to the north of the beach and dock area.

Let me know if you have any trail updates or corrections!
