Had an enjoyable 4ish mile hike around the Lakeside trial. There are several spots where the trail signs are not terribly well marked. The trail itself is pretty but mixed: earthen trail, gravel, asphalt and even a section of abandoned parking lot and road. A few bicyclists and occasionally other hikers. We had a very pleasant hike with our 2 dogs. There is a ford across a steam to get to the trail at one point, which required a scramble up an embankment on the other side involving exposed roots and a bit of mud. Still, it's a pretty hike and quiet in the deeper woods. Highly recommended and will do this again in the fall
