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.

My local go-to trail. Lots of people and dogs on weekends. Can be very muddy in warm winters and spring.
