Lord Hill Regional Park is over six miles of designated trails. Trails can be used for hiking, mountain biking, or even horseback. We love this park for its close proximity and lush forests that make you feel like you’ve stepped completely in to nature. We also love this park because you can choose a new path with each visit.

Lord Hill does welcome equestrians and many boy scout troops use this park as outings. Even with the popularity, I found this park to be such a great option because it isn’t too far away, you can choose at a moments notice how long (or short) you want the trail to be, and even in the middle of a residential area it still feels like you’re lost in the forest.
If you’re lucky, you may even be able to spot a family of beavers constructing a dam!
