Really great trail for a walk. Not so much of a hike. Great place to walk close to town. Great views and love that is has both lake and mountain views. Perfect for a quick evening walk or nice Saturday morning stroll.

Some great views of the distant Twin Peaks, and was able to observe a blue heron on the lake. The flat loop nature of this appeared to make an appealing choice for runners and casual bikers; do note that this trail primarily runs through neighborhoods and is close to a busy highway, which creates some traffic noise. A nice place to stretch your legs, but not for getting out into quiet outdoor spaces.

Agree that it has lovely views and large birds, Eagles are often there. It's a go- to trail because I am close and don't always want to drive far to hike. Longmont truly needs more trails!!

It's pretty enough, but it's also very crowded and right in the middle of town. So a good spot for a morning run or getting out of the house for an hour, not so much for escaping the hustle and bustle of life or getting into nature

I live nearby and it is a nice walk all the way around! Friendly people and great views! I love to run around the lake and doggies love it.

Nice walk to stretch your legs if you live nearby, unless you are looking for a free place to paddle, not worth a drive. Dogs MUST be kept on a leash, animal control is frequently in the area and does give tickets.

Easy walk, beautiful scenery, gets boring after a little bit.

Participated in a 5K walk here and enjoyed it. An easy walk, pretty lake, not spectacular as it's basically in the middle of a neighborhood. Probably great for kids and local families, has a park feel.

Beautiful homes to look at, peaceful but not real exciting....its a nice lake to walk if you live in the area, nothing worth driving a 1/2hr for.

It was a good hike for my 4 and 9 year old. We enjoyed the lake along with the views that came along it. There's also a playground so the kids can rest or do something different.
