This was a great hike out in the woods, not too difficult at all and very pretty scenery.

Picked the perfect day to go. With the storms moving through there was absolutely no one there when I started and when I got back there was one other vehicle in the parking lot. This is generally a popular place for mountain bikers so it was nice to have the trail to myself. The trail is uneventful with no real big payoff (i.e. waterfall or such). But still a nice trail to get away from things. The overlook at the lake is somewhat blocked by trees but still worth a stop. The trail is well marked and maintained. Bathroom at the trail head if needed.

Pretty great trail near my parents’ house. I brought my mom and my dog (he loved it!). There are benches at the top and at the turn around of the trail, which has a lake view. Well marked. The path is easy too... just watch for rocks and branches. Keep your eye out for fun details... a rusted out old truck and some interesting trees.

Not much to see. Go left at the Y on your way around, makes for a better hike. Paths are clearly marked.

First hike of the year, and first hike in years. Breaking in new boots and determined in 2020 to hit more trails. Trail was easy/moderate for the most part, just watch your footing, rocks and roots. The turnaround at the end made a nice place to sit and have lunch. If you want an easier route stay to the right, at the split... hard workout/return, stay to the left. It was 37° but we got a sweat on. Sunday morning 10 AM, not a soul on the trail, past a couple runners on our return, and once we got back to parking lot, 3 more cars arrived. Very enjoyable on a tick-less, spider-less, snake-less morning.

Great trail for anyone looking for an easy hike. This is great for beginners or anyone looking for a day to get out. Trail is in good shape and well marked. No real water on the trail except for when you make it to the lake just over 2 miles in.

Solid trail. Exactly 4.2 on my Garmin. Really more a single-track walk than a hike. Not hard, and pretty when the leaves are down. Well marked. At the end of the loop you can get to the water which was helpful for our dogs!

The trail is in great condition. A nice walk in the woods with a view of the lake at the end, nothing spectacular, though.

Great little walk through the trees. Trails are well marked and well maintained. I forgot to start my tracker until about 15 minutes in.

Did Bayshore and Dutton loops - total 7.5 miles on GPS. Bayshore is nice walk along ridge with lake access about mid way. Dutton loop goes into hollow which has a couple nice rock formations, pretty lush along the creek bottom- and be on the lookout for the hipster bananas :). In the summer Take stick or trekking poles to manage spider webs and bug spray.

Well marked trail, generally pretty but certainly nothing noteworthy. Lots of shade and the trail is well maintained.

First off, it was great weather for hiking! There were several groups out, but it wasn’t too busy at all. The trail is well maintained, well marked, and easy to follow. I think the trail was close to five miles from the trailhead, to the overlook and back. The overlook was very scenic and peaceful. Overall enjoyed it.

I love this trail! Beautiful lake spot for great meditating. It is closed today (1/5) due to current hunting season. Anyone know when it opens again?

A cold hike through the woods in late December. I would say this trail is on the easy end of moderate. A gentle downhill all the way to the overlook and then a gentle uphill slope on the way back, with no serious elevation change at all. The view from the overlook, even in winter with the trees bare, is mostly blocked by trees. The trail is very well marked with blazes and signs, and many benches for resting along the way.

This is a great trail for getting out on a short day hike. We’ve taken the kids, the 9 & 6 year old did great. The 3 year old rode in a carrier & was over it about mile 3 but he prevailed. Ha! It’s got a great stopping spot for snacks & a breather at the lake.
