Did this trail a long time ago with a slower hiker friend. The only difference is we added the loop on the end that you see on the map to make it about 10 miles. We did the hike on a dry, mellow Jan day. There's a lot of wildlife present away from summer. We saw deer, a coyote and a lot of different types of waterfowl and hawks and a golden eagle. It's a good, wide trail and a lot of it is lakeside with nice views. We also saw several fish caught from the rental boats that day.
