Enjoyed this trail. Easy to navigate, terrain was even with a few sloping areas, pretty views and well marked vegetation. The additional loops add extra trail if you want a bit more distance. Nice beach areas. Very clean.

All the trails Marked very well . Like how there are a lot of different loops to take off the main loop. Can choose your distance as you go

This was a nice trail, although I'm not sure I would bring my two and three year old back to walk it as it seems primarily designed for mountain bikers. I loved that they marked the flowers, trees and shrubs!

I loved running this trail plus it has a beach and an island!!! There are also a lot of spots to camp. Easy hike and pretty. I haven't taken a bike on it but it looks really fun with the curves and the ups and downs.

Excellent trails for the beginner not too technical and the climbs aren't difficult. These trails are fast and fun like being on a roller coaster.

We had a wonderful time. We went in the morning during the week - meaning we were the only ones there. When we were leaving a couple more people cars pulled in. It was quaint and nice; the trails were fast flowing, but not what I call thrilling.

Very nice level trail that has lake view for much of the hike. While there were mostly bikers they were all polite and friendly and shared the trail appropriately. The leaves are just beginning to turn. This trail has many educational tree and fauna identifying markers with great descriptions so if you are interested in learning about this then this is the trail for you!

It wasn't the best mountain biking trail in the world but it was still extremely fun. Make sure to watch out for other bikers around the sharp corners because we nearly crashed into other bikers twice. I would not recommend hiking because you are constantly on alert for on coming bikers.

Nice trail. Too many mountain bikers for a hike.

Good hike for everyone, including small family members. There is a nice bathroom facility at the parking lot. The trail signage is very clear and you can easily figure out which trails you want to take. The Central loop is 3.1 miles and the loops off of it are very well marked at each intersection, even giving you the mileage of the extra loop. You can add loops and make up a hike of around 6 miles or juswt stick with the basic loop of 3.1 miles. Having the lake in view most of the time is an added bonus. Really enjoyed this hike.

Very well marked and maintained. Jack Rabbit is a central loop trail with offshoots of varying lengths. Nice seasonal views and beach access from some trail options. Also has foliage signage along the trails. Trails are shared with hikers and mountain bikes and can get busy on weekends and in season.

Great rolling, flowing single track. Very well maintained and ridiculously well marked. No lung busting uphills or white knuckle descents. Great place to take a beginner. I'll be going back soon.
