Nice flat loop around lovely Burke Lake. This is a mixed use trail for walkers, hikers, runners and bicyclists. The trail runs from concrete to gravel to dirt and is well maintained.

Nice easy walk, lots of people on a Sunday. Plenty of room to pass. Gorgeous lake.

Great run, but the mileage is closer to 4 than 5. Advise going when it's been dry for a few days. It holds some water in low areas causing some slippery and muddy spots.

It was very peaceful and it was beautiful to see the bald eagles that live in the park now. Took internal trails with my pup to avoid the cyclists and runners. I look forward to going back!

Great easy ride without too many hikers on the trail! Would encourage any riders to take a stroll since it appeals to all riders and has great views around the lake! looking forward to next time!

Best at the beginning of the Fall Season due to the beautiful colors (burnt orange, yellow and red) of the autumn leaves. Nice water views and well maintained trail year round.
