Nice and short. Lake is the center of many connected residential clusters. The lake is pretty nice and scenic. Great loop for novice runners/light joggers.

I rode this trail after work one day; nice for road bikes. It was about 5pm and wasn't too crowded.

The paved trail goes around Lake Elkhorn and is very flat so good for a family ride. It's about 2 miles around so I did the loop twice and then followed signs to the Patuxent Branch Trail to add about another mile. If I kept going the trail would take you to Savage Mill. This part of the trail is in shady woods with very few people. Total ride at leisurely pace was half an hour. You could do lots of longer rides since many paved trails hook up to the loop around Lake Elkhorn.

Lake Elkhorn is a a nice place to walk/ Power Walk, jog ride bike or walk the dog. The view is is beautiful and a stress reliever there are many other path ways to go but all of the paths wil lead you back to Lake Elkhorn, there are signs to follow so that you won't get lost, so with that said enjoy your time at Lake Elkhorn.

Busy but nice to add the loop when biking the Patuxent River Trail or taking the dog for a walk. Like the exercise stations too!
