Love Creek Now Dog Friendly! For at least a one year trial period you’ll be able to hike with your hound on many of the great trails at Love Creek. We’re giving this a try to avoid confusion between parks (Madeline Bertrand trails have long been open to leashed dogs) and because we know many folks will only hike where they can take their dogs. Rules are simple: dogs must be leashed and waste must be picked up. Don’t be that dog hiker that ruins it for all. Please follow these rules and we’ll hope to make this a permanent thing!


Spring Wildflowers in full bloom! The spring woodland wildflowers are currently spectacular at Love Creek. We recommend taking the Old Dam Trail out to the  Love Creek Valley Loop for the best viewing. This hike will be about 2.5-3 miles in total distance.


Park trails are open daily, dawn to dusk. Current Nature Center building hours are 10 am-5 pm Wednesday-Sunday. Closed Mondays & Tuesdays.
