Easy trail to follow. Their is only one area uphill that is moderate. Beautiful scenery off trail a bit by the lake. Didn't see any animals. Their was a giant stone wall in the middle of the hike that was pretty cool.
easy trail close to home
Great hike, went with my wife and 9 year old. Logged a total of 3 miles. Easier to start on the North side of the parking lot; it's a steep climb to start this way, so to finish 3 miles with this ascent would've been a different hike.
I hike the trail often, at least once a week. always a new experience.
it is my church.
awesome trail, beautiful views!
Steep in spots. Do start as recommended counterclockwise .... When you get to the end of the trail you'll be glad you did
Great trail to hike with a dog. You can access the lake about halfway through so I always let my pup swim and she is dry by the time we get back to the car. This is a pretty easy hike but it still feels like a hike rather than just an easy walk through the woods. This usually tales me about an hour.
nice easy hike. great views of the lake.
I did this trail a few times. The best time to go is later in the summer when the water is low. I went off trail and walked the rocky shoreline .
