Wonderful area to walk and hike. Lots of areas along the lake to fish, sit on a bench or take additional trails. The trail around Lake Padden is flat and easy to walk or bike with family. I added on surrounding trails to total 7 mi. These outer trails offer more challenge as low moderate hiking ability. Totally enjoyable and will do again. Much beauty! The lake is gorgeous!

This trail I would say is a beautiful well maintained trail. My toddler and I did this hike and it was very accessible and easy to do. We both enjoyed and highly recommend this trail too people with kiddos. There is incline spots here and there but well manageable.

Offshoot of the Lake Padden single track, a few minor inclines and a couple switchbacks. A bit more intense than main Lake Padden trail.

Great, well maintained trail. Stopped here for a stretch and brisk walk after an hour in the car. Not difficult and great for a family or pets (leash required). Mostly hard packed gravel with a few decent size puddles during the rainy season

Very nice and peaceful loop trail around Lake Padden, it takes me about 45 minutes to walk all the way around. The trail is really popular, but is plenty wide to handle it.

One of my favorite trail running routes. If your a good swimmer, in the summer you can run this trail and swim across the lake and back after.
