Loved It! Not too difficult terrain wise; trail is tough to follow. The app works pretty good with GPS where it gets iffy. Had a Bald Eagle fly right over us, got some decent pics for phone cam. Highly recommend this longer than 5.7 mile hike; with the occasional 'detour' it was 7.7 miles all the way to the lake and back.

Walked on this trail for a bit today. It was a nice, easy walk through the woods on a paved trail. We had a really hard time trying to figure out where to park as the trailhead listed on this page is well past the locked gate. We finally parked by the boat launch and walked on the road (which is all the trail is anyway). We ended up taking a logging road for some water access and had just the best time jumping over the tiny streams that pop up everywhere during the spring thaw.

Views are great, and air quality beats that of the valley. However the trail itself doesn't lend to the water - expect to backtrack if you walk the lake shoreline.

I wouldn't call this a hike, it is about 8 miles if you walk all the way to the power station though, and that was really neat to see. It's an easy shaded walk that is half on a paved road (no cars). Lots of beautiful views of the lake and places to stop to eat a snack. I would do this hike again, it was a relaxing day.
