Big Island Loop is 1.5 mile loop trail and is primarily used for walking and mountain biking in the summer, and cross-country skiing and snowshoeing in the winter.
Some beautiful parts to this little loop here and a little amphitheater too. I will definitely be going back to the point of the peninsula on the south side for some good sitting and thinking time on the shore of Albert Lea lake.
Snowshoed this trail today with my wife and had a great time! The trail is well-marked and in good condition. The terrain is very mild; almost completely flat, with very limited elevation change, which makes it great for all ages. We also were lucky to see a small herd of deer crossing the frozen lake!
