The lake itself isn't particularly pretty. Water is brown. Not much wildlife around -- as far as we could see. The trail isn't very well marked either. Having said that, it was a nice enough afternoon walk in the woods.

I've been hiking this trail ever since I was about seven years old. Pretty simple hike and always enjoyable with a scenic view of Lake Surprise! Would definitely recommend!

An easy trail around a lake with little elevation change. It gets longer than 2 miles if you follow the pink (red?) trail as it will lead you up away from the lake. We got a bit lost

Peaceful trail around a lake, with plenty of branching trails to wander through the hills. The lake and woods need a good clean-up effort, but it's an enjoyable experience nonetheless.
