Lovely trail, cool sights to see. A bit muddy, but it comes with being a hiker. Got a bit confused when it said I was off trail, but I must a took the wrong path that was adjacent to the trail. No worries. Calla loved the hike and sniffed everything. Great trail for dogs, families, and was very relaxing.

Beautiful with the snow! A little icy under your feet, so be careful, but doable!

Easy hike, not too many people at the time. Nice if you’re local or want to do a quick walk/ mini hike. A little muddy in some areas, but could be avoided.

Arrived at 11 and still a lot of parking available in the lake side parking lot. Easy family trail. Lots of people. Some followed masking rules. Nice place for an easy walk.

Started at top parking lot. Took green trail, past the bridges got off on the road. Took the road to the “Bread” trail opening. Took it to the end, and then hopped on yellow for a full loop.

Okay run. The last 3 miles I was running in the dark.. slowed me down a little. A lot more sandy terrain then usual... I was slower then usual- upsetting
