still as beautiful as always.

a beautiful clean trail. gorgeous view!

Hiked the entire loop. Took a little over 4 hours (12.7 miles) . I saw no one from the time I parked until I got back in my truck. Very peaceful with great views of the lake during most of the hike. Looking forward to doing it again in the Spring.

This is a great little paved trail. It is well maintained and a pleasant trail. Not overly difficult but does have some challenging points. Be prepared to lap them a few times if your a regular hiker used to more wild paths.

Can't wait to go back and see the falls REALLY running!

Easy to follow, well marked trails that weave through a very diverse area made for a great weekend trip. The WCs that don't connect to campsite 1 (I forget their numbers definitively) may are may not be worth it, but Pickle Creek and both loops provide great visuals.

You can't go wrong with this beautiful trail.

This trail was excellently marked! For a trail running newbie, I'm thankful!

Recommend taking the trail clockwise to get the uphills out of the way when you are fresh. Since there was snow on the ground there were times it was difficult to see the trail- but was understandable with the weather. Overall a great trail for a run/hike, I plan on going back!

Good Hike

Nice little walk along the water. Great to observe the fish and fisherman. Also a great warm up for the natural tunnel trail also located at the park.

Wonderful trail.

Lots of wildlife and great hills. Absolutely beautiful!
