Nice varied trails, we did the horse/hikers trails so nothing was paved. Wide paths to walk on, can get hilly but nothing overly steep. Do not recommend going during rain or right after rain because it will be muddy.

The creek itself is very lovely and changes with the seasons. Apart from the main path which is paved there are many smaller side paths for the more adventurous. Some take you right to the creek and the scenery is lovely.

I use Ridley Creek State Park regularly. The paved loop trail is terrific with varied terrain including hills. Unpaved foot-only trails extend throughout the park. The park is heavily wooded and includes one state record oak. The park is beautifully designed - even though there...More

Ridley Park around the Sycamore Mills section, where Bishop Hollow and Barren Road meet, is a great place to take the family (and/or dog) for a short or long walk! Enjoy!!

No place to purchase food or beverages at the park but many picnic tables at the mansion and at each of the numbered sites, and benches along the trails.

In the past the park hosted group camping, like the Boy Scouts, but I have not seen groups there for a few years. There are no individual campsites.
