Wonderful looped trail with the kids! Great views accompany an easy walk. Saw some moose, are some snacks; what more could we ask for?

Easy trail and beautiful views of the lake. We saw a moose at the head of the trail. We did this in July 2017.

Great path and very easy!

I wouldn't call this a hike, but it is a nice boardwalk around the lake. We like to have picnics there. Very crowded on weekends and evenings.
