It’s out and back at the moment. The dam is closed for repairs until October 11th 2018. Great place though!

Nearly completely flat paved trail. Perfect for a recovery run. Gets crowded later in the am on the weekends.

A very relaxing hike. The 5 mile distance will give you a nice exercise.

Super easy trail to either walk or bike. Pathways are plenty wide for most of the trail, but be courteous of walkers if you're biking. Likewise, don't hog the trail if you're in a group. Parking is usually plentiful, and there are a lot of place to have a meal afterwards nearby.

It’s a very pretty trail around the lake. It’s completely flat the entire route. It can be very busy on the weekends, so the earlier you start, the better

I really enjoyed this walk it was peaceful and not a lot of road noise for the most part my two small children enjoyed it as well. There isn’t a whole lot for them to do because all along the trail are signs for rattle snakes beyond the trail so I did not allow them to go stomping into the brush. And it’s kind of annoying that they allow cars to drive on the path to get to a fishing spot on the other side of the lake. I’m not a huge fan of walking so close to moving vehicles with me two small children. Despite all that it is still a very nice 5 mile walk very peaceful.

Great to go on with kids. The parking lot is small and might have to wait for one to open. Also there are paddle boats and such for rent.

This such a great loop! Lots of scenic views with the inlets of the lake! Get there early- parking fills us fairly quickly after sunrise on the weekends!

Loved this run! All pavement and nice and flat. Beautiful view and very friendly people doing the same, just getting some fresh air!

This is a great place for both my pregnant self and 3 year old daughter - flat, easy, mostly shaded with lots of intereating nature sights.

I often walk this on Saturday mornings with my dog. It’s easy and pleasant. You’ll see a lot of people on the trail, but it doesn’t feel crowded. My only complaint is the parking fills up rather quickly.

Pristine views. Quite and peaceful. A few “off road” trails available.

Nice view and clean road. Some shades as well. Always love to see a goose named Louis at the end:)

For an easy walk, this is probably the easiest trail that you could ask for. It is a nice length. I also explored a connecting primitive path up to a little park.

Nice trail. FYI was closed on Thanksgiving so you have to double back and park at the library,
