This is a great little family-friendly hike. There wasn't any snow when we went. There were a lot of lily pads on the lake, although it wasn't completely covered.

When it says easy take it seriously. It is more of a nature walk than a hike. However, there were tons of downed trees that you have to crawl over so if you have limited mobility it wouldn't be the best until the trail is cleared. The lake view was nice.

For those who get lost. When you come to the first fork in the road with a ton of downed trees keep left even though the path appears to go right.

Not easy. Expect to lose the trail in a heavily traversed treed section, cross streams balancing on small logs, scramble over many large fallen trees for a small but pretty pond. There are better hikes for families in Summit County than this. Meh.

I had difficulty finding the correct once I got inside the woods. After double backing, I found the correct trail and had no issues. Great run and pretty views of the two Lilly pad lakes. There was a great deal of mud.

A nice walk in the woods but a ton of fallen trees blocking the trail. Nearly impassable near the top due to heavy downed trees that are very hard for a short person to climb over. Hopefully they will clear out the debris and it will be a much nicer hike later on.
