Very simple walk. Got to see a turtle haha but it was very short and able to just get out for fresh air. No traffic or anything when I went.

I hesitate to call this a hike. It’s not that horrible, it’s just very short, does not go around the lake and the scenery isn’t very exciting. Trash in areas and definitely in town. A fine area to teach kiddos good trail habits though.

Looked like it would be a good trail, but once we started on it there was trash everywhere. I was concerned what my dogs would run into. The drunk homeless guy as we turned a corner sealed it for me. We turn around and left.

Very pretty, nice and short, lots of birds, a cool snail but running into a couple crackheads knocks it star.

Loved the trail, it was easy to locate and very quiet although it’s not far from the main road. Some wildlife and variations in the trail provide some decent trekking. Kid friendly but not much access to bathrooms.

Lots of homeless trash and campsites. Some drug paraphernalia on the back side of the trail. There are lots of little spurs that are dead ends. Nice covered trail. Pretty short. Not much exciting going on. Lots of people fishing.

Didn't care for this one much. Kinda depressing out that way. Also by the road so not much for quiet.

There are some signs posted by the City of Lacey on this trail that tell you not to enter due to dangerous conditions, we believe it is from the storm earlier this year that knocked down a bunch of trees. We entered from a different side and definitely saw a lot of downed trees, looks like they have been doing work in there to cut them up, but regardless, we did not run into any impassable trail.. Know ahead of time that there is no designated parking on the edge of this trail, so you will need to pull off on the side of the road. Great for an easy, in-city getaway! You can also go to the park side on the other side of Carpenter Road, where there are several picnic tables and benches, a nice grassy area, as well as a shorter trail around that part of the lake.

A nice short nature hike. The scouts are doing a good job of maintaining and improving the trails.
