Pleasant walk with lake views and varied forest. Very flat so easy for all. The trail has been graveled so no mud.

Easy, wide, flat mostly graveled trail around the lake. If you start from the boat ramp parking lot the trail starts on the left and goes clockwise around the lake. If starting at 2nd parking lot the trail starts at the dam. There is a 2nd shorter trail around the smaller lake. It connects on each side of the dam. The smaller trail is gravel on the far side of the lake and is a mowed grass path along the parking lot side. Nice little trail.

Fun loop around a lake. Easy, relatively flat trail. Yellow-rumped Warblers were thick.

Nice area outside of town. Pretty trail with lots of pine groves to walk through. Nice bridges over the streams going into the lake. The trail splits by the Dam. I went around the lake and walked the gravel road back to the parking area.
