This trail was really pretty. It was pretty flat—not a challenging hike at all. There are a couple of places where you have to walk across a board, which is a little scary. The lake is very low so you can walk out to it but beware the mud—my hiking buddy sank in up to her calf in about two seconds! Bugs weren’t bad this time of year.

Like others, we were completely swarmed by mosquitos throughout the trail since it runs through a very swampy area. I would recommend lots of bug spray if you decide to give it a go. Besides being dive bombed by bugs, it's a pretty straightforward trail that you can take at an easy pace.

A hike on this trail on a hot July day meant that we were constantly swarmed with mosquitoes and other buzzing things which made it harder to enjoy. We should have expected this since the trail goes through swampy areas down to the lake. Pretty trail, though, that is an easy walk with no elevation changes.

Be careful. This is a beautiful trail I use often because it's scarcely used but often I hear gun shots in the distance. The area around is legal public hunting ground so watch out if you go off the trail at all!
