Did the west loop. Nice short easy walk with a small section of hilly terrain. Well visited trail with plenty of dogs in tow (actually,owners in tow).If you just want to get out into nature without a serious workout, give this a shot.

Great place for a walk. Trail offers variety of scenery along the way with different sections offering a different experience. Usually very crowded though.

Pretty great! Lovely views of the lake and lots of beautiful trees around a river.
I really enjoy the hills in the unpaved section.
There was in fact quite a bit of foot traffic.

Quick easy access for routine exercise, but usually busy & not particularly friendly crowd. Very much a city walk.

Great trail walk, lots of elevation changes. A little confusing in a couple areas on the unpaved side. Highly recommend.

Love Lake Johnson. The unpaved side of the lake is more moderate with more hills, but beautiful views on trails.

Easy! Picturesque trail. Asphalt paved all the way. Under 10,000 steps.

Once you get to the northwest of the lake the crowd shakes out and the path turns into a great escape. South side of the lake makes for some good trail running.
