Upsides: People were out having fun & not worrying about wearing masks. Downsides: Busy / crowded, a rude guy on a paddleboard in the middle of the lake was blasting bluegrass & the rest of us were stuck listening to it.

A trail around a lake, wherein small rocky "islands" sit. Most of the hike is very easy but there are some short, steep, rocky inclines throughout. Small trails shoot off the main course, which are also fun to explore. There is a beach and pit toilets located nearby. The main parking lot for Sylvan Lake also features the trailhead for the strenuous Harney Peak trail. Beautiful and scenic, with lots of landscape photo ops.

Really pretty lake with pristine waters . There were so many bugs which detracted from the walk quite a bit for me.

We took a trail off to the right of the lake along the creek - end of summer and beautiful. Thru the fields and around the area. Easy for the kids and great picture taking.
