Quick and easy hike. I think it took me about half an hour to do the loop and that was with stopping to take pictures. Most of the elevation is at the very beginning of the hike. Nice and quiet during the morning.

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.

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.
