Views are pretty, but trail is not maintained or marked. We missed several hard to see turns. Unless you are watching the map the whole time, you’ll miss a turn. Part of the trail was closed. The detour was not marked...we just figured it out on our own.

What a lovely trail. You need to pay attention as this trail isn't well marked. It goes along the lake and has gentle hills, shade and birds and ducks. It is perfect for a family and those who really don't love hiking a long distance.

There's a dirt lot before the entrance to the park that's free to park and the trail seemed to start there. We did the loop in a clockwise fashion which we recommend now that we've completed it as it will get the big elevation change out the way first. Lots of little ups and downs closer to the shoreline. We found using the recorded path helpful as there were a few forks in the road and some paths were slightly overgrown. Porta-pottys along the way.

This is an accurate map even if the trail doesn't show up elsewhere (for me?). The lower half closest to the lake was a little overgrown (Sept 2017) and narrow but fun ups and downs and twists for sure.
