Peaceful and serene. It's like heading out to the mountains without actually having to drive to the mountains. This is my favorite place to jog in Winston. It's also fun to bike (and rewarding) the Greenway from downtown to the lake, even on my road bike. (I hear there are a lot of great mountain biking trails around the lake, too).
