Very serene and simple hike. Multiple lookouts and opportunities to soak in the reservoir.

Went kayaking soon after.

Once we found the trail markers it was a nice hike up hill, after rounding the lake it was a mellow trip back !!

We started at the other boat launch and headed up the trail/road then took the white/silver trail. A few steep parts but beautiful woods and we saw no one else on the trail this morning. Would def do it again.

When the trail first splits from the parking lot, if you have kids, go left and follow the trail around. It's easier. Great hike!

Great easy hike, this time of year the leaves blanket the trails so the hardest part of the hike was judging your footing. Aside from that, the ground on inclines especially is very stable. Great quiet hike.
