Good trail! Nice circle around the lake. Lots of people fishing. Lots of dogs. Short hike if you just do the 1 loop. Highly recommend!

Easy, simple dirt trail around Oak Lake. Perfect for families. Lots of dogs, runners and people walking. Plenty of parking. Clean, well-maintained trail. A lot of benches to take in the beautiful scenery of the lake. Also, there are a few hidden trails if you wanted to venture from the main circle of the Lake.

I really enjoyed this trail. I was eager to find the hidden trail. I found it at the end and took it which was not a problem because I prefer longer hikes. I enjoyed the hidden trail more because it was like walking through a nature trail and I only ran into one person versus the many people on the base trail.

Nice and clean park. Worth to go there at least ones to have a run or a family piknic. But if you want to chill or relax, forget it. Rd168 is so extremly loud that you barly can hear your kid shouting from 30yrds. It's not a place to get rested...

Beautiful trail, dog friendly, jogging friendly, shade, look out points! Some bugs so bring bug spray. Mostly shade but the ground gets mushy and muddy if it rains the day before.

You can't go wrong here. Plenty of room around a beautiful lake with a great surface for walking. If you like to walk 3 miles, it's twice around. Well marked at every quarter mile.

We were back again for the weekend from NC, very popular trail, recommend to go pretty early when less crowded and more parking spots. My lab enjoyed the walked :)

Very easy trail around a lake. Plenty of ppl, dogs, and even stroller traffic. The path is wide and allows for you to get around people if needed.

I took my chocolate lab to the trail and we loved it so much, easy walk, decent distance. Even some parts of the trail close to the expressway, but I didn’t find it bothersome. I plan to take my lab back again everyday until it’s time to go home

Great walk but not quiet since it’s still near the interstate and very busy. Overall a very nice walk and scenic.

Scenic path around the lake. Heavily used, and you won’t get away from the road noise. However, if you’re looking for something quick, accessible and local to get outdoors for a bit, it’s a good walk.

Love this trail. Only problem is large groups of student athletes run at fast pace, which can be a bit dangerous. Otherwise awesome.
