The Orange trail is COMPLETELY overgrown with tall grass that we lost the path twice. with the tall grass we got THOUSANDS of seed ticks. wear more bug spray than you think is necessary and protect your animals as best as you can. both my dog and I are being treated for tick-transmitted illnesses and we were both covered with repellant.

My boyfriend and I went hiking at this beautiful lake and loved it! However, I probably wouldn't recommend starting out on this trail, as it has a lot of rough touraine. There are multiple trails at this location, marked with different colors. I'd enjoy my adventure but I forgot to factor in tick season!

Trail system is not well marked but easy enough to make your way around. Great day hike for those who love woods, open area and the lake!

Horse tracks were a little cumbersome. Some areas of the Yellow trail were not marked very well.

this trail is really beautiful once you get past the camping area by the lake. My group went in January, so the frozen horse tracks were a little tough on the feet. Amazing views of the lake and prairie type scenery. Definitely a good trail for a day trip.

Took the pink and white trail systems. Pink consisted of a dirt road access which had horse tracks causing a rough ride. Some areas were a little fun but overall, the trails were overgrown and unmanaged. Overall easy technically. Not a fan, would much prefer Lake McMurtry trails a few miles away.
