This trail is great with several attractive features. Well maintained, but challenging in rainy periods. We enjoy going over the older dam when the water is high. A little buggy in summer. The fallow deer are often out.

HikingGreat!

An excellent trail with a varied landscape. The views of the lake are well worth the trek. Can be muddy in spots but I’ve hiked this trail after a rain and it was still navigable. I highly recommend this one to any in the area.

Don't go after a big rain without trekking poles and ready-for-mud shoes. But still a beautiful trail.

Lovely hike but there are a couple of spots that could use more signage. A trail map, paper or downloaded on phone, can be helpful. Hiking stick is helpful at small, muddy stream crossings with small logs laid across for crossing. Mute swans and white pelicans are on the lake this week Jan. 16,

One of our favorite trails. Beautiful views of the lake and convenient lakeside spots to take a break about half way through. Clockwise from the lake back to the nature center was much muddier today than the other section.

HikingMuddy

Very nice trail. Some soggy puddle and stream crossings and a fair bit of slippery mud. If it has been wet at all, trekking poles are a good idea. Lots of dogs out on the trail. Sunny lake crossing in the middle but the rest is largely under trees. The breezes also get serious on the lake and at the tops of hills. Bathrooms at the trailhead, along with a nature center that was closed. Still plenty of parking outside the gate near the restrooms. Also has a covered pavilion with picnic tables and a few grills. A nice day out!

HikingGreat!Muddy

Really enjoyed hiking this trail yesterday. The grade was easy, trail was wide. Yesterday it was muddy in areas but that is typical this time of year. The lake views were beautiful. Recommend if your looking for an easy day hike.

Definitely do the big hill first. You’ll be too pooped to pop if you don’t. It’s a nice trail with lots of birds. The lake is minimal for the winter, and you can see all the stumps you have to avoid while boating in the summer.

This really is a nice trail. It's easy to follow and usually offers nice encounters with wildlife. It is not uncommon to see deer, eagles, or other native animals on this trail. I only walk this trail however in colder months. In the summer there are tons of mosquitoes, ticks, and snakes on this trail.
