Getting off the main roads to the "single track" trails improves this significantly. Lots of bugs even early afternoon in late August.

awesome trail even in the winter. Great views and very private. I did the whole thing with both my dogs and only ran into other people at the dogsled tours.

Good winter hike. It only took about an extra 15 each way, compared to our last hike there from last October. The snow on the path had been broken by snowshoes, it was a pretty good winter hike. In and out in about 2 hours.

Easy trail. Lots of opportunity to connect with more rugged side trails. Herd of cows blocked my access to the lake when I was a mere 100 meters away.:(

An easy, family friendly trail that has a slight incline going to the lake. Large service road means everyone can ride it. There are a few little bridges to get over some water.

First to Review

Nice wide trail, gentle incline, suitable for everyone. Trail starts across the road from the 15th tee box and is well marked all the way the lake. Keep your eyes open for wild strawberries in summer. We also encountered some cows resting in the forest. Definitely recommend it!!
