I mountain biked for the first time on this trail with relative ease. Note there are a handful of spots that tend to be muddy on this trail. Many people jog here and bring dogs off leash, so be careful when speeding around corners.

I've hiked, ran and mountain biked this trail. One of my favorites when trying to get a quick workout in. Nice mix of hills and flats, even on a short loop. Beautiful views of the lake, a couple creeks and a good connector to the greenway and other trails nearby for a longer workout. Not super secluded (driving range, park office, multiple playgrounds and greenway nearby) so I feel pretty safe on this trail. (I always recommend taking pepper-spray into the woods or on a multi-use trail!)

Quick, easy, and full of squirrels for the dogs to stare at! The pond at the end was beautiful
