Nice trail. Using couple of residents areas, but overall good. Nice view of lake.

Beautiful little low-traffic Saturday walk with the dog - the fully paved trail alternates running along the lake and through various housing communities. Note that it can be a little difficult to find the trail - or to end up on the wrong path - when it crosses roads, but the trail markers at those points have pretty clear maps printed on them. We parked at the shopping center and didn't run into any issues, although I suspect that's not strictly encouraged.
