A little overgrown on the hillside but not too bad. Overall, a great trail. I think most people only do the loop around the lagoon instead of the up and over the hill to and from the Butcher Road entrance. But in my opinion, this is one of our (my pup and I) favorite trails in the area with the full 4 mile loop up and over the hillside. Great for dogs! This is normally a weekly hike for us and has quickly become a staple. Just remember to pick up after your dogs.

Nice easy stroll around the pond. Other trails in the park offer more of a challenge.

You can get a ton of miles running around the lake. If you are a birder, you can see many different species of bird around the lake as well as deer. It's very beautiful in early spring after the rains when the surrounding hills are green.

I like this trail. There are many different trails actually. (I only recorded 3/4 of my walk today.) Has a little bit for everyone to enjoy: picnic area, dog park, playground, frisbee track, walking trails, lake, some wildlife, etc. Trail damp in areas after recent rains, but not bad. Part of the trail has asphalt. A little more foot traffic this Friday morning before the holiday, some bikes, some dogs (most on a leash). I could hear the freeway traffic more on this walk then I have on others. However, I dare say when they created this 30-40 years ago, they didn’t think it would be a heavily used highway.

Not a bad trail for flat mileage. Nothing too technical & not a lot of altitude changes. Trail around lake is a little soupy after rain.

This trail is easy enough and the view is okay, but it’s not peaceful. Very close to I-80 so this means constant road noise. I’ll this trail is good for casual strolls, those out of shape for hiking, those recovering from an injury, or families. Serious hikers need not apply.

This is great for a quick flat run if you just want to get your distance in. You also have several other options if you want to challenge yourself and take another trail with incline.

Not a bad hike at all, trails are nice, views are scenic. Good starter trail.

Nice, easy stroll. Watch out for disk golfers, they don't always call "fore". Take extra time at the grove at the bottom of the hill, by the freeway to take in the cool shade. Keen eyes around the lagoon will spot turtles, frogs, toads, beaver and otter in addition to waterfowl and raptors. Gets busy on weekends. Kiosk is currently closed so parking is free until the city gets new permit machines.

Hiking is a loose term, very loose. Its a stroll...If you have little kids part of this trail is ok, but most of it is actually on the road so be careful. I would say little kids under 5 might enjoy a 10 minute portion of it when the sun isn't hot. I wouldn't drive more than 15 minutes for it. I was positive enough about it until I discovered most of the walk was going to be on the road. We had to dodge cars a lot. I would skip it and I definitely wouldn't pay a fee for it.

Enjoyed a nice stroll around the lake!

Wonderful 2.5 mile walking trail around the lake. Beautiful at sunset and lots of geese & duck to watch. Well kept, clean Trail. Looks like there’s a great frisbee disc course, saw a few groups playing. Only negative thing I’d say is that sound of people flying their drones. They’re not too loud but just annoying. Loved this park!
