on Mount Summit Trail

Easy hike with wildflowers and lake views. The lake is definitely the park's main attraction, and their hiking trails more of an added bonus.

Horribly marked, mostly mowed path through very young timber and grass land. Nothing really scenic at all, maybe waterfowl at times. Not a lot of thought or planning seemed to be used. Definitely NOT worth the gate fee. I have a park pass and probably still will not return to this trail.

Hiked this trail twice before. The trail transverses through some new growth forest, along Summit Lake and then through some restored prairie. The scenery here is pretty dull, but you can occasionally see some in interesting waterfowl.

This is not an adventurous trail, though the scenery is worth a trip. For the naturalist it is a good destination especially for birds, insects, and wildflowers. The reservoir has a lot of coves and I think is good for kayaking.
