Lake is small - no spectacular views but it's a nice trail. Lots of roots and rocks to walk over, which I really enjoy but may be problematic for some. Trail gets very narrow in several areas so it's hard to pass. Lots of mountain bikers also use this trail, which can make for some very close calls in the narrower areas.

Easy to get to with plenty of parking. It is a very small lake, but has a lot of trails that are well maintained. Summers are great with picnic tables and hammocks, but they are removed after summer. Many trails are very narrow making it difficult for bikers and walkers to share.
