Beautiful 5 mile hike, has the whole trail to myself (other than the few dozen squirrels). Rough terrain with lots of roots, a bit hilly, quiet, and peaceful!

Quiet and beautiful but you can still hear noises from homes across the lake or boats so not completely secluded. I only met a handful of people on the trail but it was mid-day on a Thursday, so that may have had something to do with it. Easy enough for a beginner, hard enough for experienced day-hikers to not feel bored. Appropriate for older children.

Nice we usually take the short turn trail shortening that walk to 2.7 miles. If you do the full trail the second half is fairly hilly. lots of nice lake views mostly on the first half.

As advertised, a nice little walk around the lake. The trail is not ideal for joggers, definitely an ankle twister with all the roots.
