Jill F. on West House Trail
Trail itself was fine but parking on fast paced highway edge was slightly scary. Entrance was difficult to see.
Beautiful lake views and only one steeper section made for a pleasant walk.
I wanted to complete the loop around Brandt Lake, which I did, using the mountain bike version of this trail. The mountain bike part of the trail is very busy ... although lovely and nice and long ... the walking part of the trail is much shorter (about half the length). Lovely forest. There are a few ups and downs, in the main this is an easy trail for an experienced hiker.
This "loop" is very nice. A well maintained trail, with parking along Lake Brandt Rd, and near city facilities at the marina. Hiked this early February, weather cool, sunny, all leaves off the trees. Great time of year to do that, no bugs. This is an easy afternoon or early morning hike for an experienced hiker. There are some small climbs. No toilet facilities.
