The paths were great but the only thing I didn’t like was that there were no markers or many signs on what path you were on. It’s a maze and it would be great to have more markers/signs. Thank goodness for this app.

Stunning ferns covering the ground make for a nice change in the flora you typically see. Fun for walking, running, and biking.

Lake is small - no spectacular views but it's a nice trail. Lots of roots and rocks to walk over, which I really enjoy but may be problematic for some. Trail gets very narrow in several areas so it's hard to pass. Lots of mountain bikers also use this trail, which can make for some very close calls in the narrower areas.
