Great place to walk. Pretty easy with some mildly inclined stretches. Nearly 100% of the walk has water views. Unfortunately fair amount of dog waste is not picked up by owners which detracts from beauty if the area especially closer to the parking area. Fairly popular location.

This was a great trail! It loops around the pond and it's a beautiful spot! I got a decent exercise from the 2+ miles and a few hills! Great place to walk your dog in the metro west area! :)

It has a few small hills, wonderful views of the lake and some side trails. The dogs had a blast romping in the snow and even made a friend we hiked around the whole loop with. All the dogs we came across were off leash so if your dog doesn't do well in that situation, I wouldn't recommend it. We hiked around in the fresh snow which made it a little more strenuous. Lots of other folks had cramp ons, snow shoes and cross county skis. 2.4 miles to the tee--a perfect little outing when short on time, daylight or energy--we all got in the right amount of work out.

Nice loop around a pond. Easy terrain makes it great for running though not as interesting if you're looking for a hike. Dog friendly with lax leash regulations. Garbage cans out for folks to throw out their dog doo though I wish people made better use of them.

Beautiful trail, easy and peaceful. Unfortunately, too many unleashed dogs.

This is a good walk. Nice and open as well as shaded. Very peaceful. We have a dog and liked that there were trash barrels located around for easy disposal.
