I walked the full circuit of Lake Galena just yesterday, which was a beautiful fall day. Being a Wednesday morning, and very warm, it was a quiet, peaceful, & enjoyable walk. Highly recommended to all, if you have the opportunity to take it in.

Always an easy visit for us whenever we have a free weekend. Nice photo-ops in every season. The trail area near the kayak/boat rentals, the dam, sailors point and the nature center bridge tend to get a lot of traffic (pedestrian/bikes). The remaining 3 miles or so is much more peaceful and mostly shaded. That section also has two areas of 8% grade. There is also a bird habitat area and nature trails near the Chapman Road/ Nature Center parking area. A blue heron was hanging out there last weekend around sunset. Kayaking, sailing, row boats, paddle boats and paddle boards are other activities you will see on the water here. You can rent by half hour/ hour/ day or bring your own.

Very clean, easy, trail. Kid and pet friendly. Plus, they even have a bunch of grills and picnic tables all around the lake for public use. I've only given 3 stars because the trail is a little boring as far as sights go BUT the park as a whole deserves a 5/5. I am there with my family about 4 times a month.

I've done this loop 4 or 5 times this year and have found it to be closer to 6 miles than 7. I like that you can get off the paved trail on the side of the lake opposite the main park entrance and the trail through the woods is pretty well marked with stakes and ribbons where it's not obvious from the foot/bike traffic.
