The trail is great for exercising. It is clean and well maintained. However, due to fencing it is difficult to see all the beauty of nature. 04/20/2017

Great loop for running on! Most of the trail is wide, but one section is a single file trail that can get muddy. I love the elevation changes here- one really good hill, but other than that gentle rolling hills.

Visiting from Colorado and wanted something close to Kent. Great trail with quick access, some rolling hills. It is a single lane gravel road for the most of the loop and some mild single track. This is not back woods running and 50% run along a road way.

Not much to see and there are several times you walk along streets.

Good for running and biking, or a really long walk. Pretty in some spots, chain link fence all the way around and no views of the lake. Great for training runs though! 9.5 mile loop, maybe a little under that, but not by much.

Hilly, gravel road for most of the way, narrow gravel trail for a little bit. Don't let the name fool you, you can't get anywhere near the lake, it's a watershed reservoir that provides drinking water for the area, so you won't even see the lake during this trip. Lots of elevation change, great for a run or bike ride. A go-to spot if you're looking for a sure thing 9-miler, but don't expect anything special in the scenery department.

This is a great trail. Great for a morning ride! Lots of shade!
