This was a beautiful hike with beautiful views. I am new to hiking, and was able to easily do the hike. Places to rest, and even a bathroom and off leash dog park!!

Amazing! Plenty of trails to follow and pretty easy to do! I love hiking, I recently discovered my passion for it, so exploring new parks and trials is my thing. I went in here and I had so much fun, trails are nice and quiet, so much beauty and the smell of the trees is great. There's a lot of spider webs though which is not my favorite but if you go later on the day you won't find any spider webs on the way, since I usually go around at 6:30 am.

Good trail overall. Pack in pack out. Isolated and quiet. Bring a friend. Not a lot of trail signs, pays to ask.

Fun and short trail through some pretty lush woods. Nice and quiet with hardly any traffic, but it is on post so if you don't have access then don't drive here.

yes I forgot to add. Poorly maintained and it is kind of hard to find the trailhead.

not bad. I would say about three and a half Stars. the parking lot on the Pioneer and is a little sketchy because of some of the people. But it is a beautiful hike and actually a really good workout.

Did it with my 5 year old who was a trooper. She handled the 5.1 miles. Pretty easy with amazing views.

The lake is pretty, and the walk is great. The off leashdog park is nice. I take my dog here every weekend and let him run and play with the other dogs. The walk around the lake is easy but can get crowded.
