It's unfortunate that this walk isn't in the best place but I always feel safe when my husband carries his gun

The area isn't the best. But if you are with someone and have some mace go for it!

Not a very nature like hike and short. Would be good for an after work quick hike. Be aware of your surroundings not the best area.

A nicely maintained trail in the heart of the city.

Good fishing in this spot from my kayak. But don't worry about the people smoking weed there. They just come there to enjoy the park like you did. So don't be judging peeps.....js. Omg....that dudes smoking a joint me might rob me....lol.....jackass!!

This is a nice place to have a easy walk, picnic, or playing with the kids at a playground. I would stay away from the west side and south side though. There are a lot of gang type people that smoke pot and listen to inappropriate music which is not good for children.

Very easy paved trail around the lake. very easy walk. only thing that is bothersome is the people smoking pot but the playground, and the loud music coming from cars parked. It's like a block party at times.

I love the lake, the views of Pike's Peak and Garden of the Gods in the distance. On a hot summer day it has a cool breeze and shady spots with a level surface all the way around. In past it must have been beautiful but seems neglected now with dead trees and bare dirt spots where used to be grass. Parking lots are riddled with potholes, so beware.

The wildlife is uplifting – a great blue heron, Canada geese, ducks, fish, and very friendly squirrels. The loop is actually 1.25 miles, so 4x around is a 5 mile workout.

Though parts of the park are cared for, there is an overall feeling of neglect, and an atmosphere of people hanging out with nowhere to go. Homeless people occasionally pass the night. And even in the early morning, some of the people using the park made me feel uncomfortable as a woman walking alone.

I'd recommend you go with a buddy.
