Nice walk, wides sandy trails. Mostly for atv or trucks. But only saw a few on this beautiful Sunday morning. Lots of birds to watch. If you go around the lake,There are a few parts of the path that are washed away, almost saw two bikers go right into the water. When we were heading out, we saw a bunch of turtles just hanging out in the sun.

This is not your typical woodsy trail. You are able to drive most of it in a 4x4 vehicle. The trail is very sandy and often filled with very large puddles that force you to turn back and go a different way. We ended up having to turn around quite a few times due to dead ends or puddles, and ended up having to walk back to our cars on the main road. It was not possible to follow the recorded trail unless you plan on swimming across the lake in certain parts. Overall, it was still a cool hike with the views of the lake. Saw a lot of wildlife too - frogs and a snake!

Definitely nice scenery but do not follow the marked trail on AllTrails… It is not accurate. We had to backtrack several times because the trail had been washed out by storms in the past apparently.

Nice scenery for sure and flat open trails. The only thing is this advertised 4.3 mile trail is not looped. So if you walk around the multiple bodies of water which was recorded to be around 4 miles be prepared to walk directly back your original track because of the fact that it’s no longer looped. As a result total hike is 7 or so miles.
