Nice hiking, fun for a short x-country ski outing. There are a few trails at the park. The trail around the lake is a nice one for a short day of skiing.

Decent trail. Not much too see but well maintained. Lightly trafficked.

Nice trail, easy and well marked. I did the blue trail 5 easy miles. Good for beginners or families. Pretty view of the lake and I was lucky enough to see 2 eagles soaring around.

Peaceful walk around the lake, first half is a little repetitive until you get to the area with the lake.

Boring flat walk. Views of lake are nice.

Great day for a hike

This trail is very nice, with some local wildlife and a scenic lake. The hike is relatively easy, with little to no incline and no debris along the trail. We saw two water snakes, a beautiful butterfly, and a deer. There is a picnic spot in the fourth mile that is nice to rest on. Overall, I would give this trail four stars, because the views aren’t as good as some better trails and remain constant for most of the hike.

This was an incredible hike (blue square). Lots of nice nature to see (trouts, newts, tadpoles) and all just off the trail too. Beyond well marked, excessive almost, but no way to get lost. Family friendly with minimal elevation and varied enough environment to excite for the full loop. Great shade too for sunny days! Went with our full extended family of 12 (kids age 6-9). We will be back to explore other colors and extend too!

Blue loop is a beautiful walking trail. Well maintained and marked. Looking forward to revisiting the other trails.

Had a Christmas Eve walk around the lake- icy mostly at the beginning and end of the trail near the parking lots so my first and last miles were slow, through the woods the trail is snowy but totally manageable. I was in my trail runners and was just fine. It’s frozen under the snow but it’s crusty enough to give some traction.

Easy 5+ mile hike. Pond was frozen but the stream was flowing. Saw a nice 13 or 14 inch trout in the stream.

Definitely an easy 5+ mile trail run. Lots of shade and plenty of bugs! Run two loops for a challenging 10+ miler! Would recommend running in the early morning when it's cool, but, to each his own..

Ran 7-14-2019 at 7am. Sun just came up. In first 5min I ran up on a deer (Doe) 5ft from me, just looked at each other lol.Trail was easy to see had a scenic view of the lake for apx half the other half was through the woods. Flies were biting me the entire run made it hard to enjoy the run. Any run is worth doing once. Good Luck.

Recovering from two knee injuries so this trail was a good place to start. Only did 2 miles but still enjoyable. Very pretty. Will definitely come back and work up to the full trail.

Excellent trail. A few muddy spots on the portion between the beach and the bridge but it was pouring rain on me from mile two on so that’s to be expected. Truly a pleasurable experience.

Easy hike. The blue loop is well-marked. Really muddy in spots but expected this time of year. The trail veers off into the woods for about two miles, maybe more. There’s no steep inclines or rocky climbing, so those looking for a challenge might want to try another trail. Took my 10-year-old Golden (who still thinks he’s a young pup) with me. Nice and peaceful walk, but nothing spectacular. Would do it again.
