Really nice trail with great views. Generally in good shape but there were some narrow areas that were also slightly overgrown so it was a little tough to navigate in some places. There were a few places that looked to stay muddy where stepping stones or something could be utilized, but overall it is still a very nice trail.

A little muddy in the winter... but what trail around here isn't!? No bugs thankfully. This trail was great for my 5-year-old. Just long enough to wear her out. Pro-tip = if you walk clockwise, you can have your kiddo and wife wait at the furnace trailhead while you finish the hike to get the car, thus avoiding the large uphill section!

I really enjoyed this trail, but my friend had trouble in her shorts with so much overgrown vegetation. To each’s own :)

Trail was overgrown in spots and it was buggy.

Very challenging in some areas. Not overly impressed with the views. Maybe we should have been on a different trail to see more of the lake.

beautiful loop with a nice wide trail to run on. Easy to navigate, and right by the lake so you can smell the Water Lilies.

walked with my son in 2017. the lake was full of lilipads in bloom. definately a killer hill at the end.going counter clockwise as we did. i think it's more than 3 miles + the way the trails conected. then the walk back to the car as well. I'd recommend this for nature hike birding fishing alike.since there were spots to do those things along the way.

Lovely views of the lake, plus a little more elevation than the furnace trail. It’s not very secluded.

Liked that it was a loop that lets you see the whole lake. Buggy.. good exercise!
