Needs to update and standardize trailblazers but it was a brisk and picturesque trail!

I really enjoy the loop trails and this one didn't disappoint. Plenty of distance and good variation of scenery with lots of path options.

Good lake side trail. Some points are rocky but still runnable. Needs better views to be 4 or 5 star.

Always a pleasant hike. Plenty of trails and things to see around the lake. Very dog friendly. The only down side is that it is very popular during nice weather and can be crowded at times. Also, because of the crowding, there tends to be litter and debris around.

Easy trail, except can have some really muddy areas after rain or snow. Late fall and winter can be the best if your looking for quiet and solitude.

easy for beginners; enough mileage of trails if you're looking for a workout
