Horseback riders are also welcome at Minooka Park with trails such as Deer Ridge, Turkey Creek, and Pine Mountain which feature beautiful views, creeks, and the opportunity to see wildlife such as white tail deer and turkey. Hikers have access to wooded nature trails and a one mile walking trail around Lake Minooka. The walking trail around the lake along with five fishing piers and a large deck overlooking the lake are handicap accessible.
