It's an easy hike. Nice only if you don't mind hearing cars around you or seeing power lines.

Great wooded trail. Overall easy trail. Saw a couple of deer. Nice view of the lake. Wasn't too busy on a week day. Army Corps of Engineers property so no firearms are allowed. Pets are not allowed on the trail.

Great place. Very foresty though (I dot know? Is that a word? It is now!) definitely bring some bug spray!

Most of the trail was not busy at all and this was on a Sunday. If you do the whole loop you get to see all different parts of the park. A very pleasant day spent hiking.
