Beautiful, peaceful trails

Spiders! lots of spiders. I decided to try this for my first "moderate" trail and it was pretty difficult. It doesn't look like it's traveled much, as sometimes we were wondering if we were on the trail, and we were constantly swatting spider webs out of our way. Other than that it was a beautiful hike! We parked at the tennis courts and walked to the cabins where the trial starts behind cabin 8.

Fair upkept trail was some trees down in 4 places shaded most of the way lower trail is lake view most of the way did not hike all the trails there but will be back with my bike for the rest the trails on this trip was hike only for the first part of the hike.

This is a beautiful and peaceful trail. The water is so blue and crystal clear. I just wish you could see more of the lake along the trail.

Awesome place to run to at last light or when times running short. you can spend thirty mins or a good chuck of the day. shore to play around is cool plus there are stake beds for fishing. took a visit late summer early fall with my dog. meet a few along the way. Water is very low in the mid to winter to early spring, revealing lots of rock formations. For a harcore hike go else where but awesome place just to kick it for the afternoon. Took a guess at miles i really dont know.
