Started my walk at the trail head near North Overlook Park. There is plenty of parking at that end. The wide paved trail meanders through woods and is rather scenic. This trail is ideal for biking or for an outing with kids.
There is a bike rental in Pella and you can easily, in a short amount of time get from the town to the lake. I did not walk the entire length of the trail, only about 2 miles. In those two miles there were no view of the lake. Not sure if you can actually see the lake from the trail at all. You can see the lake when you pull to the parking lot at the North Overlook Park.
