I LOVED this trail. Went on a Sunday September morning, and we literally passed three people the entire time (and all of them in the last five minutes of hiking). Easy walk, some nice variety in the terrain. I loved the parts where the forest opened up and all the little stream crossings. The lake is visible for a good deal of the hike on your left. I can imagine that it gets busy in the summer, but it was incredibly quiet and peaceful, only a few boaters out. Loved it!

Love this trail. Recommending it for hiking. It is only easy walking for the first mile, before it narrows to a one person trail with climbing up and down elevation. Vegetation is cleared on the path, though rhododendrons branches do get in the way. Wear good hiking shoes.
