Took two 5-year-olds, and we all loved it. They kept stopping to look at things, and we had lunch by the lake, so it took us 6 hours to complete! We saw wild turkeys, deer, giant hawks, and more. Beautiful views! Will definitely return. Little town near the entrance to the trail was super charming and looked like it had some great dining options. Will stop there for dinner afterward next time.

Lovely, easy walk around the lake. Beautiful scenery. Easier to start on the shady side route (right at the fork).

I did the loop a week after great storm. Some of path literally become stream and need extra judgment to pass. You need proper hiking boots to do this trail in wet muddy winter walk. it was pretty chilly and foggy morning but once we reached the alpine lake the view just amazing.
