It was really pretty here but this is a pretty small area. Only one trail you can do and you can't get away from people much. It's a short hike around the lake and I could still hear everyone hollering and screaming across the water. Definitely not a place to go if you want to get away from it all. I even went into the woods and I could still hear the people across the lake. Nice short walk with a pretty setting though.

Great trail! Pretty easy but a little boggy right now
