I would definitely not call this a moderate hike! There are some ups and downs but all in all it's a really great walking/running loop with beautiful views of the lake. I would definitely recommend this loop to anyone looking for a nice walk or a nice run!

Great hike around the lake. Little to no elevation gain. Trail is shared among everyone, hikers, joggers and mountain bikers. Well marked and great views!

Nice walk around the lake with some great view points..
Dogs are on leash unless in the off leash area ( the off leash area not being very scenic under the power lines)
