Easy stroll around the lake with the highlights being a “floating bridge” and the damn overlook. Nice relaxing walk over a wide and soft footpath. Recommend for all ages and fitness levels

This is a roughly 1 mile down and back at entry point to Lakeside Trail at Bays Mountain. Tons of various mushrooms to search for. Great for the kids to explore nature.

fun hike, a little more steep than anticipated... afraid of heights so a little scary during one part near the end of the trail

This is a beautiful park. Fall provides a backdrop of terrific color against the lake. This trail is easy and has a few floating bridges.

An easy, family friendly hike. After all the rain, the trail was very muddy and slick in parts, but that did not greatly impact our hike. A great hike to get out and stretch your legs.

$5 to get into the park, the trail is mostly in the woods, the lake isn’t followed most of trail, follow the map that is given, the signs can be confusing at times. Family friendly animal exhibits at the start of trail.

One of my favorite trails in the park. Beautiful views that make you feel like you are in Colorado at times. If you are thinking of doing it DO IT!!
