Easily accessible loop trail, moderately trafficked. nice view at the top. One person mentioned on here that they couldn't see the water due to the trees, the summit view trail branches off of the loop near the top. Would do it again.

Perfect combination of exertion and reward in a 60-90' hike. Coming down might be a bit hairy if you have a larger dog that's not under good control. Lot's of fun in the late afternoon with the sun coming down over the lake.

Loved the trail we took (blue) however it seemed to drop us off at a weird location and we had to walk the road back to our car. Did love it though but next time would go a different path.
