Trail with beautiful scenic overlooks of the lake at several places. A little harder to follow at the bottom once leaves cover the trail.

Beautiful trail with several bluff-top overlooks. Hike proceeds along a cliff face and a stone bluff shelter. Some of the inclines get fairly steep and rocky for an "easy" trail. I would tend to consider it borderline moderate.

A nice two mile trail with some fantastic views from the cliffs.
