Nice trail, but somewhat sandy. Mostly shaded. Not super long, went around the circle twice. Parts were muddy.

Loved the trail just make sure you go into the actual trail entrance by the loop to the parking. I entered the end of the trail so it was a bit backwards for me. But amazing

Beautiful, challenging trail! (Off the main gravel trail around the lake that is.) You go all the way to 95 and back again. Completely surreal experience. Take your time and enjoy!

Great 2 and a half mile wide semi gravel path around the lake. Fun single track joins the loop at 2 places...awesome for the more adventurous on a bike.

Good for casual walk/ jog. Too crowded for my taste, but is a fun walk for little ones. Stroller accessible. We did the loop and added a few additional trails marked as fire breaks, but still didn’t get a 2.6 mile hike. It was more like 1.6 miles according to my pedometer.

Very nice trail! I would recommend wearing long pants as some parts are a little narrow.

Unfortunately many of my old paths are now marked off officially which is sad. The main trail is still nice

Very nice loop trail. Dogs are aloud on leash. However, much of the loop is a mix of gravel, and asphalt. So it gets very hot, so consider this before bringing your dogs.
