This trail has several water views and mountain bikes. Nothing to worry about, they're very courteous.

Beautiful trail. It was quite narrow, so that when bikes approach you have to get off the tail and out of the way, for that reason it might only be good for dogs who are calm and used to being crowded.

Beautiful. There was a point close to marker 14 that I stopped and did not hear anything. It was total and complete silence. This was my first trail hike in over 10 years and it felt like so much more than 4.5 miles. I hurt in strange places right now but I can not wait to do it again.

Great hiking, but the lack of signs and clear directions turned a 4.5 mile hike into a 9 miler!! Beautiful setting just needs better signs.

Great trail to run on. Hills aren't crazy long so it's definitely a favorite.

It was a great afternoon outing with the dogs - heavy biking traffic so keep your pups close! There is a semi-hidden bench at one point off the side of the trail where you can sit hidden from view and feel like the only person at the entire lake!
