Very good mixed terrain for hiking. Mountain Bikers were very friendly and gave ample warning of their presence. Looking forward to hiking it again during the summer.

Nice trail but be prepared to move aside for the bikes. Everyone was nice and appreciative of us moving so no issues. I do feel the signage could be better. It appears there are a few trails and we didn't see a sign for Owls Roost. We must have looked lost and a nice biker asked what we were looking for and gave directions. Once on the trail, it was great!

A real nice hike!
Water views, a deer almost ran into us which was cool, and I love the pine tree forest on the second half of the trail.

Trail is a good hike. Little surprised to see about 20% of it as black top. Lot of mountain bikes.

Took my furbaby for a nice hike fellow people we super nice about biking or running by us. One issue we had was getting back to the car was a little confusing due to having short cuts and signs for most turns but not all. Part of the loop we did was paved. Good hike either way.

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

took my German Shepherd for a trail run and we both loved it. trail was in excellent shape and bikers were very respectful. beautiful views of the lake along the whole trail.

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!

Intermediate to experienced MTB trail. Be aware of trail closures when wet or snowy. Excellent corse that will challenge all riders.
