Not open to the public! You aren't allowed to walk through the Boy Scouts camp which the map tells you to do. We ran into some people there who were renovating it--had to sweet talk our way into walking through the camp so we could get to our car! Beautiful scenery, but this isn't a public hiking area.

This trail is almost completely on private property. You have to cross barbed wire fences multiple times. The trail goes by a creepy looking run down Boy Scouts camp. I wouldn't suggest doing this trail.

nice easy trail. Not clearly marked, but follow gas line markers and use your Gps no problem.

Super simple trail that has good views of the lake. It has signs to guide you so you don't get lost. And it's one big loop around which is nice.
