Peaceful. Easy hike. The 2 miles around I did was flat for the most part. Great for walking, speed walking and jogging and walking a dog or something. I got to walk some of the trails past the 2 mile mark and it seemed a little more rugged. If I decide to hike the entire perimeter, I will definitely be wearing hiking boots. Sneakers did fine today.

Very nice place. Great for kids and dogs, several different trails let you pick the difficulty. You'll see wildlife at nearly every season and the views are lovely.
First time coming here and enjoyed it. Trails were clearly marked but the maps around were unreadable. Luckily I had saved an image on my phone so I could find my way back to the parking lot when I wanted to go. My dog had fun taking a dip in the water and met some other hikers and dogs along the way. Will definitely be back to try some different trails.

Trail is not clearly marked in spots, we ended up a mile and a quarter off track at one point with no clear indicators on how to get back to the perimeter trail.
Good mix of terrain, good views, big trees blocking the path at points. Would go again, though, and bring a fishing pole next time.
