Awesome trail through the middle of two lakes. Lots of bird life, and the E & SE portion of the loop is nicely elevated for larger views.

Park at the Orninthology Center. A few parts of the lake portion are submerged, do be ready to walk on boards & rocks. Mostly the trail is comfortably wide and solid for walking.

Nice wooded path that hugs the reservoir. Some wild flowers in bloom along water. Trail needs some small clean up in certain areas off path, but close to trail . I bet early morning would give walkers more bird life to view. Great city hike!!
