This was an easy and enjoyable 2.3 mile loop on the paved walkway with beautiful views of the lake and the surrounding mountains. The bushes along 'The Rose Walk' on the lake's western edge were blooming in a large variety of wonderful colors.

Great loop as I go here to run a lot. Would not consider it a hike though. It is more of a sidewalk/walkway around the lake. Usually there are lots of people doing varied activities.

This is a highly trafficked path that is great for families with strollers, people looking for a brisk walk on a paved path with (or without) their pup, or for people that use a walker or a cane. This path is located in the community of Lake Junsluska which is surrounded by houses. The scenery is beautiful; lots of mountain views, flowers and waterfowl and plenty of benches to rest if needed.

Very nice trail. Commonly see trash washed up on the shore. Saw several different species of ducks. Easy for my grand parents to walk so that was a plus

Beautiful trail around a 200 acre lake that is great all year round. You can also walk the longer loop that is almost 4 miles.

Not a trail. Pretty lake, very developed, paved sidewalks. Nice if you are pushing a stroller.
