We live about a half mile away and frequently walk a portion of this trail. There's construction work midway on the west side of the lake through 2017 that blocks the route, but the open sections are still very pleasant. My wife and I have walked it in all seasons as a lot of the trail is paved. It can very crowded or very empty depending on the day of the week and time. If you're looking for a quiet hike away from the crowds, then this isn't the hike for you. However, this works for an easily accessible hike with a nice lake view and wildlife.
