It is a beautiful trail, but I wish they would fix the part of it that is damaged so that the whole trail can be done in a loop.

Nice short trail around the lake. Have to maneuver across palets in certain areas of wash out.

Just did this one yesteray. Honesty I don't consider the trail moderate. However, probably about half of the trail is made of wooden platforms over the water. Some of these platforms have seriously warped or fallen completely apart which requires careful maneuvering. At least right now, I wouldn't bring a dog here, especially a small one. Overall, it was fun, but a busier trail.

Some overviews call this a moderate trail. It's actually quite easy. The lake itself is unspectacular although there was one section full of Lilly pads which was picturesque. The surrounding hills filled the hike with nice fall colors. The gangways need a bit of loving. You'll see what I mean if you hike it
