Lovely trail for an afternoon walk or jog. The trail is wide and flat with crushed gravel. It's only a mile long, but the lake is a nice feature. Really close to a major road, so there is traffic noise.

A short but beautiful hike. I sure wish people would wear their masks in the restrooms though.

While it is a short hike at around a mile (almost a "stroll through a city park"... which is really what it is), the trail is very maintained, and mostly (if not all) paved. It's also a good fishing spot-- not too much to get your line caught on. The only thing that disappointed me was that I was actually trying to collect plant specimens, and it appears as though many species I was looking for that were there a couple of years ago, have since been removed. Overall, not a bad park, but didn't find what I was looking for with the plant collecting.

Beautiful lakeside trail. Pollen was thick coming out of the pine trees
