Pretty cool trail system. I enjoyed the fields and scenic areas. Very easy in my opinion. I would often go there when o wanted to do a quite and easy workout.

It was a beautiful hike. Nice and clear, only a couple small hills. We only did the trail/loop around Johnson Lake.

Nice trail, very level. Really nice that there are checkpoints with maps and directional arrows etc but was still easy to get turned around because not all side trails are on the maps. Still a really nice walk that was quiet.

Really easy walk, pretty views, but super confusing to find the "loop". Lots of trail options and quiet a few people and dogs. Good for days you want an easy walk.
