No additional dogs or humans on this trail made for a quiet day. The views were great and there were geese in the water and various butterflies dancing around.
Lake is low but views are very pretty. Woodpeckers thrive! Trail is well maintained and I am looking forward to going back in the spring. Super friendly and knowledgeable ranger at the visitor center gave us good maps too. Found no bugs.
Great first hike with beautiful views.
Steady easy trail, many bugs!
A nice hike. Some decent swimming access :)
