RunningGreat!

Lovely and easy route for a run. It’s very pretty. Bear in mind that this whole route is on small windy roads. The down side is that most of the parking near this trailhead is reserved for club members only (there’s a tennis court and such). There is also additional parking around this private pond. Half the folks on this route were not wearing masks so come prepared with your own.

Nice walk, but are walking on road, so best walk counter clockwise so can stay in lake side but facing traffic. Not much traffic except rush hour.

You're basically just walking on the road around the lake. There is no trail.

Beautiful location. One of my favorite running spots. Just watch out for the gang of geese.
