11/29/19 Nice easy stroll, we took black lake trail to salamander trail and then came all the way to the road and walked back towards the car. We didn’t hike Josh’s trail. If seeing the lake it’s all you want. Then you be better just stopping on the pull outs along 101, there is some tables.

Pleasant walking. Not great trailhead directions along the trail

Simple trail through the woods. Don’t expect much of a view of the lake except from the trailhead. A few parts are getting overgrown but it wasn’t difficult to follow the trail around the loop. Decent signage telling where you are and which way to go. Took my dog and he did fine. No mud right now.

Very fun! We thought at first we were supposed to start at the picnic tables. That's not it at all. Go around the north side and past the farm house to the east side to park. That's the trailhead with a map. This is the first time we've used this app and didn't record the walk, by mistake. Do we have to rewalk it? We saw salamanders, mushrooms and a tree growing out of another tree. Today is 12-19-2015.

I will not call it hike. It is more like a path around lake. Good for quick stop and run....
