The trail is clearly marked, although many people have created off-shoots. The trail is primarily rock with some sand, so your eyes will be glued to the trail to forego tripping. The trail comes alongside the water in several places, making it a great trail, albeit short.

This is a fun trail especially if you like to rock climb. The trail can get tricky after a heavy rain. There is a dock along the trail that you can fish from. We hike this trail several times a month and love it.

Amazing short trial! Don't pass this one up just because it doesn't look worth the trip. Great views, fun trail, rocks to climb and walk through. And a great scenic overview at the end.

this is a beautiful relatively short trail with plenty of great views of the lake. A few rock staircases, but you just need to watch your step. we'll definitely be going back for more!

I'm sure it pretty. But $7 per person is absolutely ridiculous to charge for a family to go on a short hike. Sorry but I think not.

Nice park. Trail is out and back, very scenic in spots, Good place for birding or photography.

The area is nice. Not much of a trail to follow. But the area with the large rock cliffs was pretty, great place for rock climbing.
