Similar to lake galena but nicer. No concerns with dog off leash. Nice flat trail for mountain bikes. Nice sand beach area.

Be warned of unmasked Boy Scout Troops.... thin trails so hard to get by non-masked hikers.

Road biking

Beautiful foliage, gravel road worked well for our mountain bikes, assume it’s ok for regular bikes as well. We also took a boat - a nice surprise since the website said it open only till labor day.

A little boring, but can occasionally see the lake. Trail was clear and easy to follow though.

Nice easy bike ride. As others say not a ton to look at other than the lake but it was a peaceful.

Extremely easy terrain. Pretty boring for the majority of the walk, but the lake side was beautiful. The trail connects with several other trails as well if you want to go off in other directions. Make sure you have bug spray.

Very easy, flat trail. The views of the lake in the beginning are nice, but not much to see after the second mile.
