A great hike to do with the family. We enjoyed climbing on the rocks and seeing some geese swimming on the lake.

Such a beautiful trail! Not all of it is a clean path, some spots are rocks that you have to climb over, which makes it fun! Some rocks are easy to climb up to get a gorgeous view of the lake.
