I would recommend showing up with a canoe or a boat. Is not a hiking trail but a boating destination. It’s beautiful out there though.

We went there looking for a hiking trail. Turns out it is a canoeing / boating trail on a lake.

Beautiful area but this is NOT a hiking trail. It definitely should be specified in the description

Great for kayaking or canoeing. We kayaked left out from the boat launch for about 1.3 miles and stopped to peak at an awesome waterfall about 45 feet tall on the right side of the lake. "Dock" the kayak and its a short walk from the waters edge. You can't miss it as the falls are pretty loud.
