Great short loop trail. Lots of sharp stones on trail so bring good footwear.
nice trail get here early to finish
The trail was a very cool trail with great views of the lake. I enjoyed the change in terrain on the various sides of the lake (rocky bluffs to prairie grasslands to wooded forests). Numerous natural springs were flowing which were nice to see on the trail. We received rained for about an hour on day 2 of the hike; however, the trail still stayed in good condition and the excess water seemed to drain very fast. We did have to carefully watch foot placement as it would be really easy to twist an ankle navigating the rocky areas of this trail. The mile markers seemed to be off by about an additional 10th mile with each marker. We passed 26 mile markers on the entire trail; however GPS only tracked 24.21 total miles for the entire loop.
Took a quick 2mi hike to a little lake spot right of the trail. Had a quick lunch then back into town. Nice if you are on a time crunch.
Great trails with varying terrain and not too much traffic.
Great lengthy are to spend all day!
Easy and enjoyable hike. Not much elevation involved.
