It is nice. Paved and clean. Two path options, one flat and the other is elevated. Great walking, running and biking location.

I loved this trail so much that I came back to do it again. At the fork where the trail hooks left I decided to make a right on another path that hugs along parallel to these beautiful homes overlooking the city. The trail ends and gets to something a lot more rocky, but still fun. I ended up where I started and then made a loop around the lake. It’s such a lovely hike! I’ll definitely come back again.

Nice and easy walk around the Lake. Dogs were on Leashes, but there were 1/2 dozen issues to be avoided! Shame on the Owners!!!

Running

The main loop is paved/packed dirt all the way around and quite flat. It has pretty views and a nice little dock to look at the ducks from. Runners: this place is perfect for a speed interval workout, if you are someone like myself who hates running on a track but still wants to have laps to keep track of.
