My family and I really enjoy this trail. I wouldn't really consider it a "hike" it's mostly flat, with some hills. Perfect for bikes. The trail is wide and easy to maneuver a double jogging stroller also. You can't beat the view either!

7 mile loop is defiantly longer than it sounds. The whole trail is pretty much flat with sandy gravel, with the exception of a few hills here and there. Very pretty views of the lake and some wildlife. NO RESTROOMS anywhere on the 7 mile loop.
