Nice easy trail. Great views of the lake all along the trail. Beautiful State Park to spend a day in.

Regular to the park, There are only a cpl trails on the east side. All are easy, pet (on leash only) friendly with pooch waste bag stations, dumpsters, picnic tables, ample parking, full restrooms amongst a host of other things during the "open" season. Excellent place for a full day of short trail hiking and lake activities. Weekends are crowded though.

Easy, not stressful at all. We walked it while carrying lots of fishing equipment. There are many smaller trails that lead off of the main trail to get to the water to fish
