This is a fun run. On busy days, the Lake Trail is a challenge to run due to all of the people out for leisurely strolls.

Greats views, good markers. Absolutely beautiful after a few days of rain the water falls were in full force. Enjoyed this trail in early December.

Went in early December and loved the loop trail, we even did the creek trail that is easy to find off of this one and will lead you back to where you left off in this trail.

Great loop around the lake. Easy to walk.

Beautiful place for fall. Several trails within the park. Worth the trip! Lots of camping and other park activities to do. Trail had a lot of rocks in it. Very well kept and wonderful.

Awesome well maintained trails with spectacular views.

Drive there was beautiful. Trail was pretty and fairly dry even after all the rain. Falls were worth the short hike. It was the first hike for our Pumi (Hungarian herding dog). All Trails Pro with GPS showed us where we were on the trail which helped us stay on the trail.

I love this trail. It’s easy and relax fully. Well maintained and easy to follow. Very close to lake so my dog can take a dip and cool off .

Short trail but rocky.

Took my 3 year old and dog. it was a good short trail for them. After our short hike we found the play ground and a cool overlook spot to see the mountains. Cost $5 to enter park.

Easy hike!!

It's a nice trail. I took my dog, who is Tri-paw and she handled it well. it was enough of a challenge to give her a workout but didn't wearher out.

If you want to see the Falls/Cascades first just go in the exit and come out the entrance it’s a short loop!

Short trail, can be muddy and slippery after a couple of days of rain. There is a $5/day parking fee in the park.

Great short trail, easy to start however there are a few areas, especially along the water fall that could be rated as moderate. The ice formations in the water fall were awesome!This park is beautiful, even with temps around 20F....

This is a great trail! but even though it’s short i might say it could be called moderate and not easy

Lovely brief stroll to a delightful multi-tiered cascade. Looking forward to returning when the water levels improve.

The park maps were hard to read as to where this trail started. We had done the Lake Loop and had a hard time finding this trail. We actually went in at the exit. Beautiful waterfalls make this short loop a great hike.

My kids loves this! It gets pretty rocky around the waterfall area. A few fun bridges to cross as well
