Fairly easy breezy trail. Good for dogs and great if you don't want much of a challenge and a lake view.

Great for people of all ages and hiking abilities. Couple of areas where you have to walk across tiny streams. Beautiful view of the lake and very well marked trail.

Fun trail with some easy stretches and a little bit of hopping across streams/climbing up/across rocks. It's very well marked but, as others have mentioned, you start taking the yellow trail, then red, then blue. Be mindful of those turn-offs (they're also well marked) and you'll be good. Suuuuuuper buggy, so keep your mouth closed!

Beautiful hike with lots of scenic spots along lake and on wider railroad trail. Make sure you take the red trail after the yellow wide railroad trail to complete the loop. We went 0.4 miles off on sunken rd and had to backtrack but it was beautiful. Took our 1.5 yr old but a little long and difficult in spots where we had to cross streams or rock formations.

Easy and exciting hike with great photo ops. Especially pretty but a little icy in the winter.
