This is an easy hike with some great views of the reservoir and some fresh pine forests. It is muddy in some places so make sure you wear hiking boots and look for some toads and frogs. There are foot bridges for the wettest areas. Keep an eye out for birds and take your time to enjoy the quiet. The trail is well maintained which was great because some areas, the blue markers have washed or peeled off from the trees. After your hike make sure you have snacks or a lunch and sit by the water then take a swim. It is not very crowded and only costs $4 if you do not have a state park season pass.

This is a quick and interesting trail. I thought the southern part of the lake was the most interesting. It was good for my dog too and we cooled off at the swimming area after. It cost $4 per person to enter the park.

Trail is well maintained. Lake is lovely. Great for a swim after. Mostly flat and easy going. A few rocky/rooty/muddy sections.

Nice, peaceful trail with the reward of chilling by the reservoir at the end. The trail is pretty flat - the main challenge is fording all the little streams. It can be muddy in spots.

Well maintained trail, perfect for walking with kids and dogs. Picnic areas abound, perfect for a snack before or after your walk. Kona gives this 4 out of 4 paws.
