A pretty solid trail. It could be a lot more clearly marked, easy to find yourself on the all-purpose trail instead, but the lake loop itself is fairly scenic, well maintained and just challenging enough to be interesting. Bugs were a big issue in a few places as the trail skirts some marshy areas, so consider some repellent. The trail was wide and clear enough that ticks weren't too much of a concern for our pup. Would be four stars if it were more clearly marked.

I mostly ran on the hiking/birding trails (dirt paths just off the main paved trail) and it's the best spot for trail running I've found in Northeast Ohio. It's the perfect balance of maintenance and wilderness!

Pretty area hike around the lake on dirt path or take the asphalted path. This is an easy hike.

Very nice and pleasant hike, about 30 percent is on paved road, however. Be careful in winter, the trail gets icy and can be difficult to walk on carefully
