Drive in and park. It doesn’t look promising at first on a Winter’s Day but it’s a pleasant short loop. There’s an enclosed dog area and there’s a trail past that down to the lake with nice views. There’s a children’s play area and picnic tables and seats if you want to rest. Picturesque covered bridge over a pond. We had a nice short walk in a cold day in the winter.
