About 3 miles completed. Didn’t have much time, so had to turn back... the trail was muddy at times and hard to navigate, perhaps will try again after a prolonged dry spell and the spring runoffs subside

Brilliant hiking area! Wonderful, easy trails with good markings. Nice scenery and interesting view points. Still some ice on the water in places but the trail wasn't too muddy. Our dog loved it!

This is a lovely trail that would be on the easier side in dry conditions. However, with the snow melt, at least three stream crossings were challenging and waterproof hiking boots were needed. We loved it overall - one part goes by the lake and the other through the woods. Lovely forest scenery. We followed the orange trail markings all along.

Great hike/walk through the snowy woods. Trails definitely snow covered and deep, but packed down. It was about 45 degrees when I went, so snow was melting and my boots kept falling through the snow, making the hike much more strenuous. Would have been nice to have snow shoes, but can be done without them. The scenery wasn’t bad, but nothing really special - mostly thin forest with views of the frozen lake through the trees. I left the trail for a little to walk on the frozen lake which was cool.

overall, easy hike with good views. the trail was well marked with the exception of a few spots where you had to guess the way. I logged a total of 7.9 miles.

Did the Lake Loop trail today with some friends. It played it a little longer than the reported 6.7 miles but still a nice trail with some variety of terrain. The water crossings at the steam intersects where a bit challenging after the recent rain.

Ignore the trail on the map and the switch to the blue, it goes to a stream that's almost unpassable unless you want your feet wet. follow the orange trail all the

I wrote and published a review for this loop - and All Trails removed it. I corrected their inaccuracies and I guess they do not like it - so I won't be reviewing any more trails, and i won't be paying for this app anymore.

Very nice walking trail with plenty of lake views, as well as a couple nice streams. Beware of walking this trail immediately after a heavy rain. About 3/4 of the way around, you come to a place where forward travel requires walking through ankle high water and getting wet feet is inevitable. Would be nice if a foot bridge could be added.

HikingGreat!

Easy walk with some paths winding along the brook views. Some great boulder locations to sit and have lunch overlooking the lake. Plan for more than 2.5 hours to complete.

Well marked trail, very easy and mostly flat. Leaves in the fall make certain areas slippery, there’s a part that gets flooded after heavy rains, walk across the pipe to get across.
