Lovely little trail , very easy and flat . Too quick , it's one that you would like to walk for miles on . Through the forest and then unfortunately on the road for the last bit but again , it's quiet and the mountains in front of you the whole way down to the car park are awesome . Worth it even for the drive up there . Great trail for a quick dog walk .

This is a great trail however very easy. Views are beautiful and if you hope to take some good pictures of the lake, you have to be there in the morning. Place is pretty busy during the weekend. I can't say I really hiked because the trail is pretty flat - almost wooded city park feel
