Six trails provide excellent recreation opportunities at the park.
On the north side of the park are the 1/4 mile Pinnacle Peak Trail, the one mile Overlook Trail, and the one mile Lakeview Trail. The six mile Elk Run Trail runs along the south side of the park from the inlet to the dam. The wetlands trail is a 1/4 mile trail on a floating board walk with wildlife viewing opportunities along the way. The 1/4 Tailwaters Trail is the primary access for the river below the dam.
The Overlook, Lakeview, and Elk Run Trails offer excellent hiking, biking and equine opportunities in the summer and snowshoeing or cross country skiing in the winter.
