Beautiful hike around the lake. All trails takes a slight detour through a camping area. We saw a lot of dogwood trees.

This is such a great trail. The park has a traditional park feel. It’s not a boating or sporting park.

Lovely trail along the lake- gives you a nice intro to the different areas of the park. Now I have a 21 month old who weighs almost 30 lbs. I can’t carry her on my back anymore so attempted this with easy steer tricycle. It worked great! Granted I did end up lifting her and the trike a bunch of times but if you steer around the roots, it’s totally manageable! #gltmomtip

Peaceful hike, very clean and well kept. The hike is flat for the most part with great views of the lake.

Park was beautiful, trails were short and there are only 2. Store and boat rental were closed, but camping was fully booked. Only saw raccoons and some turtles in the pond.

Easy but very gorgeous trail with lake view for 75% of it. Plenty of places to take pictures. You could trail trail or bike 75-80% of it! Great dog trail!
