Beautiful location for trail running and hiking. I took my two dogs and they loved it. Watch out for bikers. Some of the trails are narrow and not enough room to easily pass. The trail head has restrooms which is always a bonus. Happy trails! Definitely did not disappoint!

I highly recommend this trail to anyone who's looking for a moderate day hike. The trail is fairly easy to navigate, and you will find yourself stopping quite a bit along the way to snap photos of the beautiful scenic mountain views. We hiked the entire trail in about 2 hours, and we stopped for lunch along the way, so it would make a great morning hike if you have other things to do that day. It was also very lightly traveled by other hikers, so we mostly had the entire trail to ourselves (on a Sunday, too!). Overall, I rate this trail a 4/5.

Suggest hike up after walking part of lake because going other direction is killer stairs! Good workout not much shade though.

Perfect for my dog and 4yr old.

We took our 3 dogs and hiked this last weekend. I was hoping for more seclusion, as the lake trail was very busy, and most of the other trails we walked on felt very exposed. It was also free fishing weekend, so that probably had something to do with the high-people factor. We did find a trail that led to national forest, which was much more secluded, and if I go back, that will be the trail I take.
