Be prepared for the inclines!!! The Lake Loop trail is not for the faint of heart. I take my stroller, but you've GOT to hang onto on these hills...one slip, and your stroller is gone! if you're athletic, it's okay...but it's not for everyone.

Great, paved hike. Good cardio workout, signage is difficult to understand so we didn't find the lake but really enjoyed listening to the birds and foliage.

Would have given the trail five stars except for the lack of clear signage. Great walk, plenty of elevation change for a good cardio workout. Will do it again!

Solid climb and appreciated that it was longer than a lot of the local trail listings. As others said, no real views but still beautiful.

Nice trail, not so much for the views. Paved, but debris on the pavement can make it slippery even when dry. “Lake” at the top is more accurately described as a pond, but still a pretty place to bring a brown bag lunch. Wouldn’t travel far to do this walk/hike, but if you’re staying nearby it’s a good time and workout.

Not so much for the views (mostly low foliage), this hike is more for getting in some good cardio. Do the Lake Loop anti-clockwise for some decent inclines peppered with flats and declines; do it clockwise for a steady/shorter uphill climb to the lake. Even though the trail is paved, it can still be slippery when wet so plan accordingly.

Beautiful hike, straight up hill for some parts which made for a nice hard trail run. Fenced off lake is where we turned around for a 5 mile run from Ritz

Ran this trail clockwise on a hot sunny day. It’s paved all the way which is nice, but the uphill was a great workout. Bring water. Cool pond at the top!

Walked until the lake which was the most beautiful view!! Got a great work out in plus felt like I was able to explore some forest areas. There is a lot of guava trees, we seen 3 wild pigs running somewhere, a lot of centipedes fish in the lake, pretty flowers also

I ran the full loop. Trail is paved. Not many views, mostly low forest. Good for running as it has steep inclines and declines. Lake at the top is more of a pond and its mostly blocked by foliage but you can get to it in a few spots. Friendly fish cluster near you on the shore. All in all, in was enjoyable and good if you're looking for exercise!

Nice variety of trails with butterflies. Nice for an early morning walk.

We hiked the old golf course walking trail called the lake trail.

Nice hike but no real views. Good workout with the hills. The golf course is completely over-grown which makes it feel enclosed. 3-4 possible vistas as you get to the reservoir.

Lots of uphill but beautiful hike. Be careful of the Boar.

Decent workout with the climb if you push it. Otherwise not much to look at. 90% paved golf cart route.

A trail started by a golf course. I like the tunnels a lot. My husband said it’s like the one in walking dead while I think it’s like the cartoon movie “spirited away”. It’s another world pass the tunnels. The lake is small but nice and decent. It’s only 2 hours. A very elderly and kids friendly trail. Should be an “easy” trail!

Asphalt paved, unmaintained trail. Definitely would classify it as hiking, as some of it gets steep. Beautiful scenery, yes. Scenic views, no. Jungle/forest on both sides, blocking any kind of view.
