Starting at Baker's Lake Overlook, the trail winds around the lake and connects with Younghusband Prairie (a newer addition of tallgrass prairie restoration). Ron Beese Park can be also reached through an unmarked spot for additional walking. In and out trail. Scruffy, but pretty in its own way

The directions take you to the south side of the lake, there's lots of bugs but it's scenic with a heron rookery on the lake.
