Not really clearly marked. It had us going through peoples' front yards. We thought it looped, but it ended at a private residence.

Flat easy trail. Nice scenery with a creek running along side until you hit the lake. Very nice views.

The first time we hiked it we saw a bear so we turned back. Today we went again and it was an awesome hike. We only did it descending though. Probably much more of a workout ascending. Really pretty though. Not very well marked but the trail is fairly obvious.
