Beautiful trail around a 200 acre lake that is great all year round. You can also walk the longer loop that is almost 4 miles.

Not a trail. Pretty lake, very developed, paved sidewalks. Nice if you are pushing a stroller.

Definitely not a hike. But this loop took us back in time to a simpler time and reminded my husband and I of what resorts (like from Dirty Dancing) would have been like.

This was a nice family walk with great scenery. Paired with my field trip app, this was a great family afternoon.

This is a beautiful place for a walk with family or dogs. We really enjoyed the quiet walk in this community. The only negative is there are times you are walking through parking lots.

One of my favorite spots for the scenery. Beautiful place. If you are looking for trail running, this is not dirt trails, but paved sidewalks and roads. If you're OK with the pavement, you'll have a great time! Also, great spot for canoeing/kayaking.

Wonderful walk/run around the lake. Especially wonderful was the Walk of Roses. The variety and fragrance was a nice feature.
