Too much logging in area made for very little shade the first 1.75 miles or so. It just wasnt anything special. I was happy it wasnt terribly rocky in most areas. And it was well marked and easy to follow.

A little on the uneventful side for the length, but enjoyable nonetheless. The trail was flooded about halfway due to the rain, but we were able to cross with a little strategy. The lake was beautiful!

Beautiful fall hike!

Nice trail with hardly anyone on it. Mostly shady second half. Lake is beautiful to stop and have snack and enjoy shade before turning around. Easy parking.

We just moved to Phoenix a couple weeks ago and this was my first time trail running. Beautiful scenic views on the way to the lake, great place to swim, not too much elevation change for a first trail run. I really enjoyed this trail, I'll be back! :) <3
