Really nice walk. You feel out in nature in the middle od town.

Great trail run off the beaten path.

Pros:
- Paved road but soft grass to the side
- Clean/Excellent upkeep
- A lot of easy to moderate elevation transitions
- A good mix of open areas and shaded areas
- A lot of rest benches

Cons:
- Paved road so there are a lot of cyclists. They tend to go fast so you really can't wear headphones/earphones while running. I just saw two cyclists zoom by while runners were forced to jump out of the way


Overall, this trail tailors more to cyclists. If you plan to run this trail, make sure to keep your headset music at a low volume so you can hear incoming cyclists.

This was a pleasant walk! My 5 year old and 9 year old along with our 3 year old Husky had a wonderful time! Everyone we encountered was very friendly. It was a very flat trail! Can't wait to take the bikes out there next time!

Great place for easy walks and run. We exercise us and our pets here:)

I took my dog for a walk. The trail is completely flat. It's gravel. The first 3 miles have great shade/tree coverage. I can't wait to go back and trail run and bike this one. Parking is a bit tricky, but I just parked across from the park in Springfield and picked up the trail.

I great for walk or run.

The trail is smooth and well maintained. Not too busy. One spot that does mud over during storms.

I LOVE this trail!! It's huge. I do the 5.8 mile loop, but there are options to expand the length. It's paved. There are some tough inclines but they are short and spaced out. Completely surrounds the lake. Great spot!

Great paved path with plenty of grass on the sides for softer running. Good up and downs for a workout.

I loved these trails! Great for an easy walk, and not too crowded on a Saturday morning.

I like to take my dogs walking here. Nice & flat with minimal inclines. Would be great for family outings with kiddos as well.

Nice trail...I found a lean to, a camp fire, fish tail and a bud light can right off the paved trail down by the lake...near the first park bench that you come to...fairly recent. Pretty impressed with the construction of the lean to!!!
