...and everyone went hiking today. Middle of January and it's in the low 70's. This trail has a lot of up and down with a few level spots to even out your heart rate. I would consider it moderate with a spot or two that would be hard. I gave it three stars because for the first mile or so you're walking through backyards. Lots of lake views this time of year.
There were a few areas that were a challenge to navigate- rocky or steep- but I was manageable. Most of the trail was easy to moderate. The view from the overlook was definitely worth the hike, so I highly recommend it. I live very close by and will be hiking this as often as I can.

Nice little trail. Great viewing of the lake and the old buildings.
