We liked this trail. There is a log to walk across when you first get there that’s fun. You can by-pass it by walking on the sidewalk to the south of the parking lot.

Well kept, clear path around the lake with plenty of ducks and geese. Encountered numerous others walking the trail: adults, children and dogs.

Nice trail overall. Drawbacks include heavy use, infrequent mask use especially by dog walkers and feeling that you have not escaped the suburbs. If you live nearby give it a shot. Part of route did no record. Full loop is apx. 1.6 miles of flat terrain.

Nice, easy walk around a lake. A few little coves to rest at along the waters edge. There’s a dock that goes out into the lake that you can walk. People were fishing on it.

It was a nice hike. Occasional groups of obnoxious teenagers but other than that it's peaceful.

Was a nice little walk with the dogs. The water is beautiful, some people were out trying to fish, it was a bit windy out though. Some shade. Would be a great trail for biking or jogging.

Overcast with just a little bit of rain in the very beginning. Otherwise, excellent conditions with a nice, leisurely hike around the lake. Great mountain views on the south and east side of the lake. Decent amount of wildlife both in and around the lake.

Look. Everyone loves a mountain trail. For a city trail this is beautiful. Trail is great for running or walking the dog.
