We did the short trail. Plenty of ups and downs. Shaded all the way.

Love this trail! I take my dog and 3 year old daughter often. It's shady and along the lake most of the trail! So beautiful!

This trail loop has several different options, depending on which direction you go and if you choose to take the road that cuts through to the other side. We hiked south from the trailhead and it is roughly 3.2 miles of easy hiking near the edge of the lake. The trail offers plenty of spots to stop and enjoy views of the water.

Fun trail with good views. Trail has lots of ups and downs and watch out for all the roots! This trail is probably very slippery when wet. Enjoy.

Had a great day. Well kept and well marked trails for hiking. Can be a bit of a challenge. But very enjoyable.
