Pretty simple trail. Too short for my liking, but I ended up turning back and taking a trail off the main path (which is a no-no) and hiked straight up to enjoy a lake view. That short hike up was challenging a bit, which I liked since it was a short trail. A copperhead was killed there so be safe if you take the no-no route.

Pretty view, but the wind can be brutal. Straight paved road. I took my dog for a walk here... pretty boring. We're more the hiking types. Probably won't be back.
Great trail for riding and walking\running. Beautiful view of the lake. One of the few trails easily accessible and safe visiting after the sun goes down (good for this time of year when the sun sets at 530). Be aware there is NO shade on this trail at all.
AKA Northside Impoundment Trail....
Great 8 miles (four each direction) for time-trial type riding. Views of lake and surrounding area are ok, but I use this trial for building cardio. Best during the week, weekends are packed with slow traffic.
If you are looking for technical riding, this is exactly the opposie.
