This is a fairly untraveled path based on the overgrowth in the meadow access but the trail is very nice - as far as we got. We weren't too far along when we encountered a mountain lion about 20 feet ahead! Fortunately the cat took off in the other direction but it spooked us enough to make us abandon any idea of hiking. Every sound I heard on the way out convinced me we were being stalked. Be careful.

The views were great. I recommend taking the scenic route "Eagle Marsh Trail". the views are great and the trail has some downward slopes that utilize ropes to go down. 3.5 miles and a 2 hour 42 minute hike with a 5 person group which includes 2 older people

Great trail to search for birds. Many wild flowers right now. A little muddy through the section nearing the lake but manageable.Eagle Marsh section is a must. Great overlooks to catch some breeze.Large scenic wetlands.A bunch of cool rock formations . Very quiet here.
