Always a nice place to walk. The west side is a little easier so it is perfect for me to get my strength back after surgery. The leaves are starting to change color now. Beautiful colors and a beautiful little lake ❤️

I love this trail as a 5-mile trail run, I’ll just circle around twice. Great for my dog as he just jumps into the lake afterwards to cool off. When the lake is high, the loop is a little splashy near the dam, but it’s doable. It’s $5, but free on Wednesdays.

Great wooded trail bordering a quaint small lake very close to town. Lots of Sunday walkers, kayakers, and fishermen. There is a $5 day use fee so take some cash.

Easy hike with beautiful views.

The only downside is the trail is very narrow. When I went I had to navigate around fishers along the side.

This is a very easy and beautiful lake to travel to. It has a very easy trail for families that strollers could maneuver on. Part of the trail is paved and the other side of the loop is dirt terrain with small hills but very easy. From the store area it may be hard to identify the trail that isn't paved but it does go through the the water passage area where the big wall is just keep going. Look for eagles nests along the trail!

Always a great time walking around Lynx lake. The only downside was the biting bugs at dusk. Ugh

Nice easy hike with lots of shade and places to pull over. Doggie friendly.

I like this hike as it's shady the whole time and offers constant access to the lake. When I was there, there were nesting bald eagles in a tree, so the forest service blocked off that section. Great for kids, dogs, families, anybody. Periodic benches for relaxing, and well marked gravel path with variable grades.
