Basically a walking path from the trailhead on Poplar Street to the picnic Area at the Lake Atalanta park. Short little downhill trail with a seriously technical rock section before the bridge. After the bridge things mellow out and then a flat path to the pavilion.

We saw a bald eagle.

very good starter trail. For lower key, you can drive closer to lake for 2.6 mile walk.

before the spring 2017 flood this was a daily walk for me. I will be going back once the repairs are completed.

Pretty trail. Can't say it should be rated as moderate, more an easy walk. It is beautiful and not super crowded though.

I love this trail. Its nothing exotic, but great if you want to kill 15 mins or even a couple hours. Easy to access and easy to navigate with kids or your dog. Pretty little lake with lots of fish and turtles. Several good spots for casting your line if you wanted to do a little fishing. If you hike or bike up on of the well paved there is an amazing mountain bike course along with several well maintained trails.

The trail was great! The parking from Poplar stinks though. They're working on the park and once it's complete it will be awesome! I would suggest parking on the actually Atalanta Lake parking spot.

Absolutely a gorgeous walk. Of course it was the only walk we didn't bring our phones to take pictures. The lighting tonight was just beautiful and the lake was like a Bob Ross painting.

Have read some comments that it smells...it is a lake and it is going to have a smell. It smells like any other lake I've been on.

There were signs indicating the installation of a boat ramp/. I think this would be a huge mistake as it would disrupt the serenity of the lake.

Great walk!!!
