Hope Martin Park Soft Trails

Hope Martin Park has a double wide trail that runs between Singing Bird Lakes and along the Black Hawk Creek. The North and South Levee trails are great for getting an overall view of Hope Martin Park. Levee trails both continue into Katoski Greenbelt Park.

Black Hawk Creek Water Trail begins at Hope Martin Park and goes all the way to Hudson, about 14 miles. 

The area of the park that runs along Fletcher Avene has a playground, shelters, and a restroom. A number of single track nature/social trails are located throughout the park. The paved Sergeant Road Trail  runs just south of Hope Martin Park.
