HikingGreat!Rocky

About 3.5 miles, I’ve been there 5-6 times and I always take about 1 hr and 30 minutes. It doesn’t feel like it though, since there’s a beach, a lake and an area where you can swim (at your own risk). It’s so beautiful and worth the walk. Also there’s only 2 ways you can walk it and it’s impossible to get lost.

Well maintained and easy for all ages with a well manicured path. For a bit more difficulty take the center path back.

Walking

As soon as I got out of my car, the smell of porto potties hit me! The parking lot is rocky and uneven- fair warning to low riding cars! (I scraped a few times) I got there around 2ish and the parking lot was half full. As I walked the trail there were a plethora of folks heading out. The trail is wide, dirt, and some areas rocky, but more of a walk than hike. There were a few cut outs to the water, in the beginning of the trail. once you get to the peak of trail, there is a little beach like area. There were still about 15 or so folks there. I went to the rocks to sit and relax. on the way back, (I went the same way I came) I was almost run over by the bicycles. As I got to parking lot, it was 345 and it was so packed! Overall, it was nice, but for a walk, its was eh. I dont know what the hype is about. IF youre gonna kayak or do water sports, maybe it would be better. I drove 45 min here and would NOT drive out of my way for this spot. I have been to nicer beachy areas.

Mountain bikingGreat!

I rode my mountain bike and had a good time. There’s a gravel trail around the perimeter of all the mountain bike trails so ride to the top and pick where you want to drop in from then take the gravel back up! The first time it feels like you’ve made it to the top of the hill you are not there yet! If you keep going until you see a sign and a picnic table on your right, that’s closer to the “top” and will provide a longer, more fun path down through the mtb bike trails. I only explored a few of the trails but I would describe them as flowy with some technical features. Be careful if you just bomb down a trail on your first time, there are random small boulders on downhill sections that look a bit out of place and caught me off guard.
