Family Friendly. Super chill. Trail is closest to the lake that wraps around. Several detour trails but the one closest to the lake is kid friendly and stroller friendly.

A beautiful day to take a short walk. Nothing really to share about this place to entice you to make a drive here.

I use a walker, so it was very nice to have a pleasant paved level path to travel. I liked the dog bag stations but was disappointed that there were no cans for bag disposal next to them. The bathroom door did not lock, fortunately someone was with me to watch the door. I loved hearing the bullfrog and other nature sounds near by. Good distance around near the lake.

Great flat trail for an easy walk AND there's an option to do a steep climb too. Its paved too which makes it great for wheelchairs

Fun little hidden trail. Took he kids in a double jogger and had no issues, most of the trail is paved! Fed the ducks and saw all sorts of birds, lizards and butterflies, we even logged in a cache!! Super clean place.

Did the trail with my 2 year old in his stroller. Perfect for a family trail walk and finish with feeding the birds on the lake! Awesome day on the trail!
