length and view of lake were nice but this trail is heavily worn, felt like we had to look down the entire time so we wouldn't trip on the tons of roots showing through.
my dog loves this trail and so do I!
Outside of the little trash on the ground, it's a very good walk
Nice trail. Well traveled. Shady, mostly flat with nice scenery. Disappointing amount of trash on the trail hence the 3 stars.
Peaceful and quite. Some gorgeous spots - take in the scenery. Mostly shaded and well travelled trails with wide clearings. You can veer off the blue and at time stay very close to the shore.
I use to run this trail and it is peaceful and beautiful.
Great trail around the lake! Dogs loved it, as did I!
