Urban park in a suburban area. Toxic algae plums cover the lake so you and your dog can't get near the water.

Flat and easy.

The directions take you a neighbor. need to mark it better where the trail begins. Also the map along the trail doesn't show its a loop, so we got confused and ended up heading back to car. Other than that seemed like a nice trail.

Family friendly swimming area. Plenty of space to picnic after walking the trail.

My pedometer clocked 4 miles total around the lake. 1/2 of the treck is through the neighborhood, but the houses are beautiful. Once you get to the trail, the water is tranquil. Very kid friendly and dogs friendly too.

We thought the 8 mile loop would be next to the lake for the entire loop, but the main trail was only next to the lake for about 2 miles. We went off a few side trails to stay close to the water, and were pleasantly surprised to see a park there with a beach/swimming area and plenty of grass for picnicking in the summertime. There were also tennis courts, a baseball field, and big toys for kids. I would recommend Mapquesting Lake Wilderness Lodge for better directions than just clicking on the "Directions" link from this site. Those directions took us to a residential area with park access for members only.

Great easy trail for a walk w/the dog and/or kids, biking, or jogging. Nice view of the lake, will definitely become one of my regular trails w/the dog :)
