Beautiful scenery and the drive up was incredible! Trail itself is paved and pretty flat, great for a short family walk!

It gets four stars for the setting...a mile long paved walk around a picturesque lake with beautiful views of Sharp Top and Flat Top Mountains. There is also a nice restaurant to enhance the experience, as well as a lodge to make it easy to get to all the wonderful trails in the area.
