Nice fairly easy hike. We added the School House trail to it which made a longer hike. Never did see the school house foundation though. Would recommend.

Pretty trail, great lake views, easy hike.
If you hike with your dog, be aware that portions are rocky- small, pointy rocks. Tender-footed canines may have a hard time.

Pretty scenery and we saw lots of birds. The lake is beautiful. No litter anywhere. Easy loop trail with some incline! Hopped over lots of fallen trees on the trail today. I love this place! I think next time I'm going to try a little more strenuous hike but this one is perfect for dogs & families going at a relaxed pace.

Many shallow water crossings as the trail passes through coves / offshoots of the lovely lake. This was a particularly nice fall hike. Our dog loved the trail, but had to be carried over the dam section as it has screening laid over it to filter out big debris.

This was a great trail to hike. My husband and I enjoyed the trail. I would suggest hiking boots and a walking stick. I would not bring small children on this trail, for it has some tricky parts.
