Enjoyable hike. Hiked 4.5 miles with my dog. Trail is mostly a horse trail. So dogs can't use it. Not sure what policy is when trail is closed to horses. Will be messy when snow melts so suggest doing it before spring thaw. Saw two bald eagle. Would suggest going in on Grimm road and using parking access there because of paved parking. For this trail follow the Kings trail signs. Sure it would be beautiful in spring and summer also. But remember dogs are not allowed on horse trails. Great overviews and a few picnic tables on trail. Will be going on my do again list. ALWAYS WALKABOUT!!!

Did not complete the whole loop. Good birding overlook near the turn around at the south end of Carver Park Road. Trail between the lakes passes through a large expanse of prairie restoration, which was largely bald land in April 2017.
