Easy Trail. Mostly a gravel path. Nice and easy. The island is neat though, good views of the lake and some neat rock faces.

Very crowded today but there is lots of room. Saw 3 adolescent bald eagles and their parents! The high light of the hike. Fun to explore the island

Walking

This is not a hike but more of a walking path through the woods and across a bridge to an island. It's a nice walk but not much to see aside from the bridge and not at all challenging. It's a fairly well-trafficked trail. There are no trail markings on the island. An interesting local spot to explore.

Trail was good. Not a lot of sightseeing until we got to the bridge. It is more of a nature trail.

Nice easy trail, saw mom's with strollers (just make sure you have the bigger wheels). Some parts were a little rocky (gravel) and a small incline. The bridge to liffy island is nice too.

Nice easy walk with a little uphill & downhill when going off the main trail. Hiking around the island was very peaceful with some views of the lake.

Very quiet and well maintained trail. There are some hills that are a little steep in sections but not many. The bridge to the island is beautiful. There were very few people there even mid-day on a weekend
