This is a nice and easy paved bike path. There are multiple benches along the way if you want to sit and take in the view. We walked from Merrill camp to Christie camp, approx 2miles (one way). I’m not sure about the trail being a loop as others have mentioned, but maybe I missed something.

Very beautiful but the mosquitos were huge and ramped! I was bit all over. I saw several deer and a snake. The lake is beautiful and calm.

I've seen the same Bald Eagle in the same spot two years in a row. This is a nice ride along the lake.
