Nice loop in the middle of the burbs. Features flower-filled meadows on both sides of a paved trail meant for bikers and walkers/runners. Several pretty views of the lake with the opportunity to see flowering lilly pads and small turtles.

Excellent trail. Perfect for Road Bicycle & Mountain Bike. It's a 2 miles trail. Also beautiful lake view. My ideal place for practicing 1/2 marathon race.

Also there's a picnic shelter that can be reserved for summer party.
