First to Review

I’m not really sure how to review this trail. We only got about 1/8 mile in and we encountered a flooded path. After walking off trail through the vines and trees to get around two sections ... it appeared as if most of the trail running next to the lake was going to be the same. The water appeared to be at least a foot deep in the areas we encountered. The trail up to that point was easy to walk and enjoyable. Parking was easy but not a large lot. Was bummed we couldn’t get through to see the rest of the trail. Not sure if this is the norm or just from a lot of rain.
