Has some beautiful spots, a very urban hike. if you are looking for a nice long walk this is great but not much wild nature.

One of my favorite trails. Amazing views of the giant mountain of granite, cool shaded woodsy walk, stream and lake views.

Lots of well packed, well-traveled trail, good for barefoot trail running, as well as easy walking. Some sections have a lot of rocks or roots to mind your footing, which I like; keeps me on my toes! Nice variations in scenery: flat Lakeside, rolling Woods, bare rock face and beautiful streams leading into the lakes in places. Some beautiful leaf colors and wildflower displays along the way. I run it regularly. Quite empty on the weekdays, especially side trails, where I like to let the dogs run free for a bit.

It has been five years since the last time but I still remember the beauty. Hopefully I will be in the area next year. This is one of the most popular hikes in the area and with good reason.
