Lots of mushroom picking opportunities right now on this hike. Not easy but not hard. Well maintained trail during the entire hike. When you get to the fork in the trail (as you near the lake), the left trail will take you to a bridge with a pretty view of a creek before reaching the lake. The trail switches to planks of wood, some of which are a little unstable so watch your footing! This trail ends quickly as you get to the lake (less than a 10 min walk) and it’s a beautiful view! There is a decent sized down tree to sit down and relax on. If you take the trail on the right, it will again turn to planks of wood (much sturdier) and continue on for quite awhile next to the lake. You can pick up another trail on this one if you continue on, but I don’t know how far away it is. The trailhead is far from the highway so you don’t have any traffic noise at all. Great hike!
