Path looks overly planned and as though it gets cleaned with a blower regularly. A lot of roots on the trail. I found that I didn’t look around much due to watching where to step on the roots.

Not a bad little hike. Went along the edge of the lake. Weather was decent, a nice 3 mile ish hike.

Nice for the kids. Love the mossy part of the trail.

An easy, quick stroll. Some nice views of the water and lots of benches along the way for those wanting to stop an enjoy them.
Nothing spectacular about this hike, but if you are looking for something simple and relaxing, this is perfect.

Very enjoyable and scenic. We were able to keep a great pace while taking in the views. Loved it!

Enjoyed a crisp Sunday afternoon hike with my dog on leash. We both truly enjoyed it! Not very difficult and it was well marked. Serene view of the water for first half of the hike.

This trek is short (2.7 mi.) and moderate that traverses along the Waller Mill Lake shore line. It runs through some dense woods with both hardwoods and pines. It was an enjoyable hike.

it was nice not hard my kids were able to do it the youngest 9 oldest 16 no issues pack a light lunch and enjoy lots of roots not bad for $2 per car

Nice mix of technical and some paved good for trail running, hiking, scout adventures, and mountain biking(but sign says no bikes allowed). Lots of roots so you must be fit. Well maintained by a scout troop... I added some distance on some nearby paths. This park requires $2 fee if you park a car. It has great fishing areas and boats to rent etc. The shade was awesome for me since I ran in some summer heat. I’ll be back with kids to boat and do some geocaching!

Great for hiking or rucking. Clearly posted signs with multiple trails.

Nice trail with good path and scenery.

Runs by the lake with some interior.

there is no mountain bike trial. The only bike trial they have is paved.

Terrific! Beautiful views, a great path surface, and a bit of elevation change every once in a while to keep you honest. This is a walk/hike that provides you with great water views as you walk in a forested area; a rare combination!

The epitome of a great hike. The scenery is great, the trail moderately difficult but not bad at all, and the distance fairly easy to accomplish.

Pretty easy walk, a lot of ups and downs. $2 park fee, make sure you go to the building by the water to pay before you go to leave.

Very nice trail and matches description.

This was an awesome trail in an awesome park. Beautiful forest and lake views. The trail was wide and well marked. No getting lost here even without a map. There are lots of tree roots so watch your footing. There were plenty of climbs which I was excited about as I was looking for more of a challenge. And of course it was awesome that the pup got to go swimming. There is a $2 parking fee... just an FYI. There's also lots to do at the park.

Great to run, but watch out for the roots. The view from the lookout is beautiful.

Easy to follow loop, but this trail is an ankle killer with the amount of roots. I prefer the lookout tower loop if you only have time for one.

Great place! Could be a bit more organized for rentals but the price is right! Enjoyed canoeing and paddle boarding with the family.

Nice trail with good views of the reservoir. Several low hills make this an interesting walk. Be aware there is a$2 fee to get in the park.

Hit this trail, early this morning, after it stormed all night. Trail is a combination of roots, sand, and leaves. All that '70s quicksand training paid off. The second I hit that wet sand I thought I was a goner, but I slide all the way across to the hard land, and caught myself. Praise Be 1970s TV! It saved my life! Otherwise, one of my favorite trails and I go often but I don't run it. I trip over air.

We hiked the lookout trail on a Sunday morning and saw no one else on the trail. The trail is over the forest bed, with lots of roots, and with several minor accents and descents into and out of gullies. Bathrooms are near the boat house. Parking is off of Airport Road, with $2 charge.

Beautiful walking trail near the lake.

Great little trail close to home. I would rate it easy.

I would rate this Trail as moderate for beginners. For those of us who are more seasoned it's nothing too difficult. Multiple inclines and declines. The park map says it's a 2.9 mile trail however I wasn't able to record the walk so I'm not 100% sure how accurate it is. All in all a good trail lightly trafficked. Dogs must be on a leash and picked up after. No biking on this trail. There was a little bit of trash by the tower myself and a friend picked up a lot of it.
