This is my twice weekly trail run so I'm biased. Just don't sprint and slow down around the many corners (to avoid running into small children) and you'll be fine. Make sure you don't stop at the trail end and go all the way around the lake. Find the stone spillway and the "new" bridge; bonus points if there is a wedding photographer there. Don't forget the " danger exercise sort of trail" or the Forgotten Splinter Pyramid or the I Can't Believe They Built This For Kids in the 80s Fort right next to it. There's also a little trail that heads up from near the Pyramid to split the nature trail if you only feel like a 5 minute walk.

Good Walk!

Quite rocky and a bit washed out. Not a good choice if you have knee issues. But a nice walk in the county park

Definitely more of just a short walk. Perfect to do with my 4 year old.
Tip: Park on the street closest to the lake, then walk to the range station. There's also a playground next to the lake.

This hike was ok. My kids and dog and I hiked this today and it was pretty short. The view was pretty cool.

Great walk with kids who are not used to getting out and about fun first hike/bike ride for them. We will be doing this again in the near future.
