Much more accessible in late-fall/early-winter/spring. Decent foliage and for the most part, not many people on the west side.

I ran this loop for the G.O.A.T.z Trail Run and I really enjoyed it. The views of the water are beautiful and it was a peaceful run. Gotta watch out for horse droppings as parts of it are also equestrian trails but I look forward to running here again soon.

Unkept trails very hard for a bike to get through, I would not recommend this trail for biking.

East side of the lake is very walkable up until Hwy 36. The west side of the lake not so much. Trails are barely visible and it seems to be more for for horseback trailing. Used Hwy 36 to cross the north side of the lake because I couldn't find a crossover due to the higher water level.

The trail was badly in need of mowing & hard to find in many places. My Garmin showed 6.5 miles of trail that I rode. Beautiful park!

Terrible trails for biking. Overgrown, ill maintained, hard to navigate.

It was fun. We did a 7.2mile hike. The trails start and stop in odd places and disappears in other places. You have to create your own trail in some areas if you want to do the full lap around the lake but we ha da blast anyway.

Long trek but worth it:
