If your close by, and want a little stretch/stroll, this is your best bet. Seems like a lot of locals walk the lake. Most parking is paid parking ($8-9). Looks like free parking in at least one spot (see track). The lake is swimmable, and again it appears a lot of locals hang out there. Looks good for kids. Lots of Toys, and activity structures in the water, and seems safe for kids (complete with life guards). Again, you pay for entrance. There is a par course in some of the areas.

Nice easy loop, but under construction when we went. Parking is $10 for the day in the public lots, but you can find other places along the road to park. Pretty crowded, so it’s not the cleanest of places. There is a bathroom along the loop, and bins for trash/recyclables at several points so not the place to go if you’re looking to get lost in the woods.

This is a wonderful, easy trail to walk. You have a lot of gorgeous scenery and views. I like walking this trail with my dogs several times a week, I have always felt safe so I don’t mind going without my husband. You can park along the road in certain spots or pay to park in the lots. There is also a dog park with a small dog section and a drinking fountain bowl for dogs. I like to stop in there to allow my dogs to roam off leash for a while. There are plenty of trash and recycle bins along the trail so there’s no excuse to leave any thing behind. Also some exercise stations through out and a bathroom on the north west (I believe) part of the lake.

Loved it, they charge for parking. Everyone is very friendly. I saw no dog poop or trash. Just beauty everywhere

Nice short hike! Lots of beautiful shade. You do have to walk on the sidewalk/parking lot for a bit but not too much.

We couldn't figure out how to stay on the trail because there are fences in the way. I wouldn't go back, most the trail was street.

This is a pretty walk on trails along the lake shore and road. Locals are friendly. Feels somewhat more like a city hike than a mountain hike unfortunately. Lots of construction in town in spring 2018.

I’ve done this trail numerous times. It’s always a pleasure. Great for walking the dog or taking a jog.

Easy Trail to walk or jog. Kid friendly and enjoyed the scene.

First dusting of snow.

The best and most beautiful running, hiking, and biking trail on the mountain! Have put in 100's of miles training on this trail. You'll love it! Enjoy!!

I use this trail as a baseline for measuring my progress when I walk and want a bit of altitude practice thrown in. It's very easy, but a pleasant change from my hike in the flatlands. Definitely park on the street so you don't have to pay a big parking fee.
You can walk right on the soft dirt path close to the lake or go around via the sidewalk by the street that circles the area. If you use the sidewalk it increases your mileage.
There is some construction going on at the south shore but it doesn't interfere much...a pretty clear temporary path will get you around that end.
There are good sandwiches or water bottles to purchase at Goodwins, a market on the west end of the lake.

super mellow. circles around the lake. not really any hills or things to worry about. lots of people so not a walk if you want some peace or solitude.

Beautiful trail...good to pass the time and listen to music. It's all highway.

Easy, short walk/hike around the small lake, with decent bathrooms, a dog park and fitness stations. Would do it again, but would park on the street instead of paying $10 for the parking lot. Dog friendly:)

This can either be a beautiful, leisurely walk around the lake, or a great workout if you also incorporate all the fitness trail options along the way into your walk (from chin ups to sit ups, and more).

Super easy, used to do this with friends in high school. Just a walk around the lake really.
