It is very maintained and there are beautiful views. I'm giving it a four instead of a five because it felt more like a walk and less like a hike. I probably could have done the trail in flip flops.

Drive to some overlooks; unpaved, rocky paths go down to lake at various points or make your own! Good place to see migrating waterfowl, neat sunsets.
