A quick double-balloon loop on the outskirts of Belleview, with a small lake as the payoff. Starts out in an open field, winds it's way into the woods along a creek. Once into the woods, take the left fork in the trail (there's a sign) to get where you can actually touch the water (most of the lake is surrounded by high limestone bluffs). After dipping your toes in, there's a quick steep scramble up to cliffs with excellent views of the water below. At the far end of the lake, almost exactly halfway through the hike, there is a bench that overlooks the whole thing--very nice. After that, the trail branches off--the far left will give you the most distance, but the right trail will go up a bit higher and has better scenery. You'll eventually get back to the trail junction and retrace your original steps back to the open field. The 'bluebird loop' is just a different walk around the same field, but gets you back to the parking area.

This was a great short day hike. It wasn't strenuous or difficult to complete in an hour. Moderate traffic from other hikers.

Nice park easily accessed from I-40. Filled with a lot of "I never knew this was here" moments. Mixture of bluff overlooks, wooded trails, open fields and lake/quarry views. Good spot to put-in your kayak.

Very beautiful views and pretty easy hike. You park and go into an open field (just keep going straight til you get in a the woods) and it will lead you to the lake. I highly recommend it
