It’s a well maintained trail around the lake. I like to run to Waneka lake and run as many laps as needed to reach my mileage goal for the day. Each trip around is just a little over a mile.

Good for kids, nice park to play after walking around the lake.

Pretty looped gravel trail around the lake. Little work out stations every 100 yards. Moderate amount of people but not bad. Definitely a good spot for a run or easy walk. Cute little park at the hub.

Short, nice walk but lots of bugs. Gets very busy. Lots of ways to connect.

Went for a run here. It's almost 3 miles around both lakes and it's all gravel trail which is nice. There are a few places to park and there is a bathroom around the big lake. Don't expect any shade though.
