Great little trail with the kids. Not busy at all for a Friday afternoon and close to the beach for a nice cool off on a warm August day.

Beautiful and easy. A little walking through sand, groomed trails and a bridge over the lake. Great little hike.

It was a pretty walk but couldn't walk around the lake because of flooding which was a bummer.

The map on here needs to be updated a little. They have done an expansion that allows for a full circle hike. You start at the trailhead and walk for about .3 miles and come to a sign that shows you have a mile loop in front of you. If you go to the left, you’ll have to watch for the trail after the long bridge. My kids were outgoing this trip and stayed were they thought he trail was, but there is a wooden fence, like the one at the entrance, that marks the trail. They were headed towards the open dunes I think.

A short but beautiful hike around this lake. I did this trail at sunset which was really pretty. It's a simple but beautiful hike. Worth your time :)

This trail would receive more stars but... 1) take the right trail towards camp ground to the N bridge. It is lovely to shoot photos from, but dont expect this time of year to go any further than the campground. The trail around the lake on that half is overgrown. I tried going down it a ways but could see quite a distance and the trail was all swamp land covered in muddy water. I guess if you dont mind hiking thru the mud and becoming dinner for mosquitos, go for it. I had to back track and go left at the sign. It was worth being bitten by the little blood suckers as the south bridge has benches and I was left alone by the mosquitos there. I could have sat a while but it was getting a little too windy. I did go to the end of the bridge but did not see how far around I could have gotten to the marsh bog trail. I will do this trail again. However the tracking on my phone worked but would not upload to the site. I like my "mapmyhike" app much better. If you take this "hiking" trail, wear repellant, and put some on the 4 legged friends if you are walking them too. No birds seen, no fish seen, one dragonfly.

Not a bad little walk around the lake. Dunes nearby are a cool little diversion.

This is an easy hike around the lake. To get there, just take the parkway off the 101 and turn right at the first street. It costs $5 to enter the Horsefall area (pay at the entrance before driving to the trail head). The trail head is on the left (it is marked by a sign on the right). The full loop is about 1.5 miles round trip and offers views of the lake and a diverse array of plant and fungus life.

I nice little hike around Bluebill Lake with boardwalks at both ends of the lake to keep your feet dry when crossing the marshy areas. Not well used, especially in the winter when the adjacent campground is closed. There is dune access on the southwest side of the lake.
