This trail is literally NOT THERE any longer! Needs to be taken off the list and map! The roads to this place are terrible and will get you lost as well.

Great hike for the family and plenty of area around the lake to enjoy a picnic.

Everyone rating this as a 4 and 5 are so dang liars! This trail sucked. Wasn’t marked great. Hiked through 300 spider webs with a cloud of gnats around me the whole time, all for a view i could have seen from the visitors center.

Great Hike! My only complaint is that I wish it was longer. Not too much elevation gain and perfect views, which makes this a great hike to bring friends and family. Will definitely be back.

Be sure to check out my video of this location to see what it's like! https://youtu.be/hzlQjl-pGgA This was a nice trail along the water. Pretty easy for the most park. Great stop at the tip of the loop to view the water front the trail, or climb down to the water's edge. This trail should take 1-2 hours at the most. Easy to find from the parking lot and main office.
