dogs on leash
Super easy walk around the lake. Beautiful scenery and it's neat to listen to all the bird chatter. I often see deer as well. Almost everyone picks up their dog poop. I would really consider it more of a gravel sidewalk than a hiking trail. Sometimes there's a funny smell and little fly clouds, and it is quite heavily used with a road going all around it, but it is definitely still worth a visit.
Easy trail with lots of wildlife
Kind of stinky and sad that the lake is dried up but nice easy walk to bring kids and dogs.
Trail is 1.3 miles around the lake.
A nice trail around a small lake. There is a playground at the north end of the lake.
