Great wooded all natural hiking trail. Lots of shade and climbing. Wonderful old trees and a small waterfall nestled in the back. Great workout!

The trail as marked by the app isn’t 5 star worthy, but it’s so easy to use this as the main connector for all the other trails around the lake. Even then, the trails overall are ok. Not bad, but nothing special. But at the top, connecting multiple trails is a pretty awesome waterfall. It’s not dropping massive amounts of water, but it’s pretty, a good amount of water and kid friendly to get right up on it so long as you’re sure-footed and careful. The falls is what earned this a five star review.
