It's an easy hike. Nice only if you don't mind hearing cars around you or seeing power lines.

Great wooded trail. Overall easy trail. Saw a couple of deer. Nice view of the lake. Wasn't too busy on a week day. Army Corps of Engineers property so no firearms are allowed. Pets are not allowed on the trail.

Most of the trail was not busy at all and this was on a Sunday. If you do the whole loop you get to see all different parts of the park. A very pleasant day spent hiking.

Great trail. Pretty neat. #neature. Not a very hard hike, and you can choose to stay relatively level or go up hill. The view along the river is awesome. Cute pics. Easy and fun hike.
