Nice trail along the lake. Pretty scenery with small bluffs on one side and the lake on the other. Trail then leads up through the woods. Nice mixture. Well marked.

One side of the loop trail is stairs (trail head across the street from the camp store) and the other is a gentle slope (same side of street as camp store), which could affect how hard/easy the ascent is back up from the lakeside. Stairs down/slope up is the easiest. The trail is easy, but scenic - with the lake, wildlife (4 whitetail deer that allowed us very close) and quite peaceful on a mid-Sunday. 1.5 hours at a leisurely pace if you stop and take a log of pictures, which we did!

Well blazed trail that runs through woodland and then next to the lake with interesting rock features on the opposite side of the trail. The trail then runs through a campground before ascending to the trailhead. It’s a busy trail.

Nice trail along the lake and woods. Pet friendly but I wouldn't recommend it for small children, narrow in places with bluff on one side & steep decline to river on other side. Lots of birds, saw a hawk carrying dinner away. White pelicans on the lake--more than 50! Terns, herons, chickadees, large woodpecker, blue jays, and more

Easy trail that runs next to bluffs overlooking the lake and through the woods. We walked along the shoreline, then through the campground before finding the trail again near the theater.
