A great place to walk your dog, run, be with your family. A beautiful lake with lots of wildlife. I caught 2 small mouth bass in 3 casts! Saw deer and geese and ducks as well.

WalkingGreat!

Totally paved - horses were not allowed - mask wearing was minimal but there was ample room to stay socially distant. Perfect for little kids to look for ducks, fish, and dogs on a walk.

Easy hike, beautiful hike. There are ducks, geese and I've seen a swan on the lake. There are also plenty of other trails off of this one if you want to ditch the crowds or make your hike longer. Very wide, well maintained trail.

Nice flat walk. Good after a couple of days of rougher hikes. Well traveled but no issues. Connects to other trails as well.
