Excellent trail for me and my pup. Completely flat with gravel.

It was an alright trail. No access to the lake from this trail. Mostly houses. The other side of the lake has better views but no trail. Good for jogging or dog walking.

Road trail within trees with a decent amount of shade as you walk/run in the morning and afternoon. Not much when it comes to views of the lake as it's covered by trees. Good for biking though.

really need a decent map to follow. does the trail go out to main roads? all trail map seemed to just go out and back along.cedar trail? for parking, use directions to ferbank park and arboretum. arboretum is nice and lake has swimming and paddle boarding. loop is not well marked.we ended up walking through neighborhood on shorter loop.

Urban park in a suburban area. Toxic algae plums cover the lake so you and your dog can't get near the water.

The directions take you a neighbor. need to mark it better where the trail begins. Also the map along the trail doesn't show its a loop, so we got confused and ended up heading back to car. Other than that seemed like a nice trail.

Family friendly swimming area. Plenty of space to picnic after walking the trail.

My pedometer clocked 4 miles total around the lake. 1/2 of the treck is through the neighborhood, but the houses are beautiful. Once you get to the trail, the water is tranquil. Very kid friendly and dogs friendly too.

We thought the 8 mile loop would be next to the lake for the entire loop, but the main trail was only next to the lake for about 2 miles. We went off a few side trails to stay close to the water, and were pleasantly surprised to see a park there with a beach/swimming area and plenty of grass for picnicking in the summertime. There were also tennis courts, a baseball field, and big toys for kids. I would recommend Mapquesting Lake Wilderness Lodge for better directions than just clicking on the "Directions" link from this site. Those directions took us to a residential area with park access for members only.

Great easy trail for a walk w/the dog and/or kids, biking, or jogging. Nice view of the lake, will definitely become one of my regular trails w/the dog :)
