Great little trail with stop points and rest benches with beautiful views of the lake and quite a few spots to jump in the water for a swim if you desire! A few steady inclines on the Orange Trail but it was nice and shaded. Bring water and a towel if you plan on jumping in the water at the lake!

I live near this trail and hike it several times a week. It is great for exercising the dogs as it is very wide. The views of the lake are nice and the dogs can play in the water. Fairly easy to moderate and you can choose the long or the short version.

HikingGreat!

I liked the trail, I took the green trail to lake and back. Not busy at all! Hike down was good, coming back up got me just a little winded, which was good! Easy hike with my dog, wide enough trails to move out of others way. Lake Was beautiful!!

Good to exercise but not good for a natural forest experience. Almost completely artificial from the lake to the habitat.

HikingGreat!

The trail is a loop and is made up of colored sub trails. We started from green trail, to purple, to blue, to orange and back to purple to parking lot. The slope was easiest on green and we could see the lake view about 1 or 1.5 mile into it. The final trail of outer purple (along the street) has moderate slope up. However as the trail is wide and dry , the slopes feel easier to trek. It is a fun 1.5 - 2 hour family hike with young kids. There are plenty of benches for resting over looking the lake view. Great experience.

Trail was kind of boring even down by the water but my husband likes to fish so it is a convenient trail.

First 1/4 of Trail next to road. Easy to follow, good for beginner trail running. Heads down to reservoir lake which feels a bit like a Mars colony with the red soil. Pretty pine trees. It’s not a hike in the woods, it’s a lovely stroll on a nature trail in the country. V relaxing on a nice sunny day

Enjoyable, wide dirt trail with some mild/moderate hills. Great Lake views and two parking lots about 1/2 mike from one another. Not busy on this sunny Saturday in February.

Nice easy trail. This time of year, the water is really low in the lake. We were able to walk down the embankments to the current water level, just be cautious that closer to the water it can get a bit muddy. Overall, it’s very well marked and would be good for just about anyone!

A nice trail with much of it along the lake. The trails are nicely marked, and in good shape. There are a few benches along the trail as well.

We love this trail and do it 3 or 4 days a week as it is just down the road from us. It’s not a difficult trail but seeing the lake is beautiful and enjoy the beauty of the wooded trail.

Heavily trafficked. Well marked. Take a picture of the trail head map when you start. I rolled my ankle thrice today. This trail is well maintained but knotty roots in the path are a REAL danger. Portapotty at the western most parking area, but ALWAYS travel with TP.

Meh.....it’s nice, but right by the highway so you have constant traffic noise. If you’re in the area, it’s ok, but I wouldn’t make it a destination.
