There is a variety of flora and fauna in natural settings as well as beautiful views of the lake, so take your camera.

A nice trek around the lake, and if you don't mind wandering a bit, you don't need to spend much time on the paved path and can trek nearly all the way around the lake in the surrounding woods.

I'm not sure where AllTrails puts the trailhead, but a nice option is to park in the lot near the Botanic Gardens off of Crossover.

Doesn't get any better for a trail in the city. Easy for all. There are three parks and plenty of areas to sit and rest if needed. I would recommend you ch close it out if you're in the area and want a quick trip.

Great for those who want to walk their dogs, run, or cycle. Not enough nature emersion for me, but still a nice trail!

Great running/walking and cycling trail. Not really a place for outdoor exploration as such but there are some nice spots that you can go off the trail and explore the woods or around the waters edge.
