Great for family, the dog, and a good, clear path. Well shaded, even during the heart of the day.

Gravel trails. Nothing out of the ordinary.

Pretty trail run that can challenge you if you push on the ascents. Love the views of the lake as you work around it. A few switchbacks but nothing overly technical.

I enjoyed this trail in a moderate downpour of rain, but the tree canopy was so high and thick that it was just a mist by the time it reached me. This was an easy trail, almost no climbing. The small lake was pretty, despite the clouds and rain.
