During the hike it was a bit snowy and slippery but beautiful. Would do it again.

Fun trail! A bit steep at the beginning but the views around the lake are nice. Need a hike in under an hour? This may be it!

Beautiful place for a short hike with kids or someone who can't go too far. The benches around the lake are placed in perfect spots to rest.

Nice easy hike that leads to other trails. Information boards that give a history of the lake. Benches placed along the edge to sit and ponder if desired.

Steep at various locations, but well worth the effort. Trails are good clear paths.

Pretty boring hike if you like a little challenge. If you like an easy afternoon walk this is the hike for you.

It was a very nice short hike. The pond was full of frogs and you could hear them all day. Just right for kids and someone who is new to hiking

Easy trail with a couple side loops to add if you want. This was our 3rd hike and we used it as a walk after breakfast just to stretch our legs and burn off some food. Lake was glass smooth. I will attempt to upload a photo or two.

A nice little mid-week hike. Most of the elevation gain is in the first 1/3 mile. Then your looking at a nice view of the lake. The trail loops around the lake, providing several nice views, areas to relax and even a few benches along the way. There was a solo fisherman out on the lake. Beginning blooms of the bleeding hearts and lots of skunk cabbage in full bloom.

Nice loop around the lake. I went counter clockwise. Areas to explore and some good spots for sitting and observing nature. I went on a drizzly day and had it all to myself! Kids will enjoy the beaver ponds.

I really enjoy this hike. I take my dog along with me. I don't let her go off leash except to chase stick in the pond. Many people don't leash their dogs on this hike so if you have your dog please leash up when another dog approaches. I've never had a problem with other dogs but it only takes one mean dog.....

Did this hike with kids. Fairly steep for the first half mile to the lake. Then not too steep around the lake but expected more views. Not too bad.
