July/2018 Twas an excellent Sunday early morning hike. I enjoyed the quick 1.9 miles to the lake. The lake had a brook that added to the ambience of coming off a dirt trail onto sand out in the open sun. The water was warm and great for strolling through. There were lots of little fish in the water. Saw a few big ones jumping out of the water.

Parking: non existent, pull off on the road and park it

Trail: trail markers were blue markers, a minimalist method for marking the trail. Despite the minimalist approach to a trail marker the trail itself was established.
Personal trail rating = EASY the elevation was minimal. There were 15 trees/limbs to walk or climb over. There were some stairs at a steeper part of the trail right before a private property gate. FYI I’m from Alaska where inclines are a constant and trails are what YOU forge. This was easier than what I’m used to.

Trail use: trail running, walking, hiking, or day
chilling

This would be a place I’d hike Out lunch or a snack and chill on the beach with good company. There was some seasoned wood along the trail and there were signs of people having a fire. My only caution is to keep the wilderness and your trash separate. Packout what you packed in.

I like that this trail had a brook, sand, minimal people, great sun exposure, and it was a decent distance.
