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.

Rating should be increased from Easy to Hard. Trails need to be cleaned a little, but very nice nonetheless.

I've done this trail twice. It's very easy to walk..but the markings are a little confusing. The views are beautiful. The lake is amazing!! It's a great walk for the entire family.
