Paved walking path. Easy to snag some more miles by slipping off into one of the mountain biking trails.

What a wonderful trail!! We were able to take our older dog in a wagon the whole 3 miles with no problem. Great shade and friendly folks along the way.

Beautiful trail and well kept. Benches placed throughout for those who may need to rest. Mostly paved, but even the primitive trail is smooth. Great for kids and strollers are useable through entire trail. Great for a family outing or a quick morning hike.

What a wonderful trail to hike. The smell of the fall leaves was heavenly! Very nice, family friendly trail. There were several hikers out today enjoying the crisp fall weather. We have hiked this trail before and we will be back.

Walked this beautiful 3 mile trail this morning and highly recommend. Be careful (as the signs say) of the wooden bridges when it's damp out in the morning as they are slippery - we did have to walk very slow over them...so just be cautious. Made for a gorgeous walk. Majority of the trail is paved and there is lots of shade. Everyone encountered on the trail was pleasant and shared the trail. Lake is closed on Wednesdays for grounds keeping work, but the walking trail is still open.

Great, short trail to get out and move around. Trail was easy to follow and mileage was accurate. There were a fair amount of fisherman and families, but everyone was incredibly nice.

Super easy, beautiful walk around the lake. There is a lot of wildlife around the area, so great for kids in that regard. My 5 year old has a really easy time with this trail and we always find animals or bugs to look at. Watch out for snakes.

My 7 year old and I did it in just over an hour. Well maintained. Will go again. Next time we'll probably go off the trail into the woods. Lots of benches if you need a break. Peaceful.

I’m here quite often. Bathrooms at the bait house. Plenty of parking. Rest points along the way. Lots to enjoy.

Beautiful. Make sure to not let your toddler bring a tricycle as they will come out in their golf carts and yell at you. It didn’t even cross my mind that this goes into the “biking” category. Kid goes slower than my slow walking pace

Great running trail! Be cautious that the bridge may be slippery. Walking the entire trail takes about an hr.

Beautiful spot for trail running! Most of it is paved, so it's nicer on the ankles and knees after a few days of hiking/trail running on rockier surfaces. :) Truly enjoyed it!

This is a really nice 3-mile walk around the lake. The trees make is hard to see the lake at points, but along the way we saw beautiful birds, turtles, lizards, and frogs. A great place for a relaxed walk or even a jog or run.
