We go all the time with our dog. Love everything about it minus the parking (not always enough) and crowds unless you go at off times. Beautiful place and you can see farm animals :)

I take my dog here in the fall and spring, it's a great and easy trail. I don't come during the summer because there is hardly any shade at all for most of the trail. The lake is beautiful and there's a cute little farm just off the trail.

Pretty views; little shade. Path is mixed with dirt and cement.

The beginning is pretty and the rest is boring with very little shade

Really enjoyed the loop with my dog and 2&4 year olds. They loved going out on the pier and hearing/seeing all the wildlife and horse and donkeys at the farm.
