Overall a very beautiful trail, seems to be a little moderate and slippery after the rain but would suggest it to anyone wanting a great hike.

A great discovery! Nice views of lake along the whole trail. With the optional loop trails, it was 3.5 miles according to my app. Even saw a medium size (about 14" long) tan garter snake on the Cliffs Loop trail.

This is my normal jogging trail. The view is amazing on the backside of the trail and it makes for a good run. Just be careful on your way up the hill. The rocks get loose.

Starting at 10 AM it's really hot, especially on the non-shaded side. Sprayed repellent on before leaving the house and we didn't even realize there were mosquitoes out there. So glad we did! Sunrise would be a great time to start until the weather cools off.

Very pleasant walk around a lovely lake with the dogs. More than half of it was shaded. Lots of Canada geese at the start of trail! Will do again.

Great walk with the dogs. Quite a bit of shade, with some full sun.

This trail is relatively wide, about a third of it is single track with some technical sections. There are some interesting rock formations and lake viewpoints. Appropriate for kids mountain biking.

We hiked this trail frequently as we lived about a mile from it for 7 years. Love taking the dog for walks at "our lake". Beautiful views. Also great to kayak/canoe on this little lake.

Great trail for kids and dogs. Not too challenging, but still had some nice grades that were challenging for them. Great scenery. We will definitely be going back.
