Trail wasn’t very well marked. Great park with lakefront beach, tons of picnic tables and BBQ pits. A few nice playground sets for kids to play on. Overall a great park, just disappointed that the trails weren’t well marked.

Easy climb, but not a lot of grand sweeping views except at the beginning and the trail markers could stand to be touched up. But overall, a good warm up hike.

It was okay. A nice day hike. Not challenging and not much for views. You're pretty much walking through woods the whole time.

It took us awhile to find the trailhead. The hike was well kept, not too strenuous at all and a comfortable distance- just about 3 miles. Btw the trail i'm referring to is sleeping lion trail. It would have been helpful to know the name beforehand. Anyway, the hike was nice- about an hour, and my only complaint is that there wasn't any viewpoint. The trail went up and down, but you barely saw the lake.
