Wonderful and well-kept trail near the DeGray Lake state park resort. We saw at least two eagles flying over in late November 2016. Mostly flat and great for kids.
Nice leisurely walk around the peninsula. Pretty even level and the furthest point juts out into the water for a nice view. A couple of interesting trees to see on the hike as well. Better to go on a little earlier in the fall than we did this time.
The trail was nice, but we went at noon in August so it was blazing hot. BUT the point in the middle of trail looks like it would be awesome at sunset. The walk was alright, definitely not very strenuous.
Super easy loop located in Lake DeGray. It was my first trail and was so easy and pleasant I circled it 3 times within an hour. If you're close, it's a nice trail with a couple access points to the lake for the kids or dog. If you're looking to test the waters, or test the waters with your kids or dog, this is a decent trail to start. Plus there's a playground at the lodge, so after the hike, the kids can play.
