This is roughly a 4 mile, easy to moderate hike. Almost exclusively through the woods. Narrow trail is intermittently marked with signs but basically self-guiding, easy to follow, with not much chance of getting lost. One half of the trail is along the edge of the lake with good views. Starts at a small children's playground right outside the Lodge parking. I recommend a clockwise approach (Start to the left of the main Trail sigh board, towards the road). Took us 1:36 h:mm at leisurely pace. Beautiful foliage this time of the year (but going fast). One two bottles of water enough, couple of granola bars.
