Nice trail, some marked trees down, good for kids. Took 11, 10 and 8 year old and they had fun.

Great trail! The path is well worn. The blazes are far and few between. However, there is really no good reason to get yourself off trail, except maybe in deep snow. I particularity enjoy this bike when the leaves are down. Especially the little saddle before the vista spur. The vista are tight, but provide a great view of the water and beach.

This trail was great. Nice little climb gets the heart going. Initally had trouble finding entrance, but there are two. One is behind the picnic area on the left as you enter the area adjacent to the lake. The other end is just past the lake on the left side of the road right near the Tornado sign. Follow the trail to the sign for the vista, head to the vista (overlook) then back down. There is a second stop near the overlook that is overgrown, but is clearly a view. When down head to the dam to walk across the rocks to the other side. Nice treat to a fairly quick hike. Took the whole fam for the hike. Easy for kids and they loved spotting deer at the exit.

Easy trail. I've taken it in the snow and it's equally as pretty...but make sure you bring a walking stick!!
