nice trip around the lake, fairly muddy in a few spots. super hot this weekend so other than some intense humidity and 90+ weather a great short trail run, just watch your step in the wet areas. looks like the kids were having a great time swimming!

A good mix of different terrain and incline. First section to the lake was steeper than I initially expected.

Very Nice place to walk.
Not all trails are easy accessible they need some cleaning.

Nice easy trail without any steep gradients. Trail was not clearly marked in multiple locations and the beautiful lake is barely visible from most of the walk.

This is an amazing place , unfortunately dog owners think it's ok to let there dogs off leash . My dog , on two separate occasions was on leash . The first time I walked the trail the hikers with their off leash dog just laughed and said it was my problem when there dog got aggressive. The second time the owner of the off leash dog , whom actually tried attacking my dog , was rude and I had to verbally tell him to get his dog away from mine! Please enforce the leash laws. I will never come again and I am spreading the word.

Nice leisurely hike. You need to go uphill for about .5 miles before it starts. Well marked, but a little buggy. Plenty of parking and easy to find across from a dam. Pretty nice and quiet, except for some construction.

Nice little hike. A lovely place to have several different types of fun; sunbathing, swimming, hiking, dog walking, other water activities. The first hill to get to the trail is breathtaking-literally, no view, but it will wind you! A trail close to my home that I definitely plan on repeating. And of you take your dog please be courteous and remove their waste

Beautiful trails, well kept. My only complaint is that signage is a bit confusing. There are quite a few trails for such a small area and they intersect fairly frequently. Most are on Google Maps, and cell coverage is good, so if you get turned around it's easy to find your way back. Difficulty is easy, mostly gradual hills.

Great trail. Initial hike (perhaps .5 mi) to Lake is a steep climb on a forestry-service-type access road. The heart of the trail meanders around the lake through push ferns and moss-covered rocks over some small bubbling brooks. Quite beautiful. Upon completing the loop trail I went for a swim. Recommend some type water shoe as there are many rock but I didn't bring any and it was not too bad. Water was wonderful, clear, and refreshing.
People with knee / back problem may find some of the trail elevations difficult but there was never a dangerous spot (as long as you pay attention and don't trip).
There is one strip of grass between sets of boulders before you enter the forest trail that is expertly and intensely carpeted with dog feces. Watch your step! It was apparent that most owners had their animal evacuate pre-trail as I noticed no feces in wooded sections but would be nice if they picked up the grassy stretch bombs.
Overall - terrific trail.

Hard start up hill but a wonderful hike around the beautiful lake. I've seen people fishing here but no idea if they catch anything. There are a couple picnic tables so bring a lunch.

Very nice trail and easy to get to. The nice part is the lake is at the top you are ready for a swim when you get there. This is an easy trail that also serves as a road.
