We haven't visited since January, and they've done a lot of work on the trails! The dirt trail around the lake has been cleared nicely, and wooden walkways and bridges have been added in two parts. This is a great hike if you're looking for an escape from the face-full-of-spider-webs experience you'll be getting on more remote trails right now. Even though this is a well-traveled trail, you'll still get some alone time.

Very nice paths, occasionally can get confused as to which way is the path but has improved greatly.

I like to get out there early on the weekends, before the trails fill up with cyclers and walkers. It makes for a very peaceful walk, with the deer and other critters.
