Not much elevation gain but very uneven terrain. Based on 'easy' I took my 81year young mother. It took 4hrs....

Busy trail, heavy dog traffic. Hit it at sunrise and avoid the rush.

Beautiful hike. Definately closer to 7 miles....but loved it. Took 4 hours for us with a 3 1/2 year old but she was able to do most of it herself!

nice enough trail, a lot of it is actually paved so I wouldn't call it hiking. Tons of people, but being right in Pinecrest everyone does it.

Nice trail around the lake , lots of ups and downs, the views are great. Bathroom halfway but closed for the season. Sure felt longer that 3.7 more like 5 to me.
