Nice short hike. We took a little side spur off the loop and hiked 3 miles total and 326ft in elevation gain. We went to the right at the trail head and there were some steep down hill sections as you get nearer to the lake. The trail back up on the north is a dirt road and is more gradual back up. A man in his 60's was riding this loop multiple times on his mountain bike while we were there.

This trail is short, but sweet! What a delightful stroll through the woods, and along the grassy bank of Newman Lake. The trail is a bit muddy from the past few days of rain, but not so it would impede one much. I can imagine it getting a bit sloppy in the spring. There are plentiful signs of horses passing. There are also plentiful signs of dog owners who do not have the basic social morality to clean up their doggie doo.

All in all, this is a dandy spot to take in an afternoon stroll, and commune with nature.

Well marked and the trail travels through several different types of scenery. Enough of an uphill climb on one section to feel like I got a bit of a work-out. Nice parking area. Although there was plenty of evidence of trail use by horses we only ran into one other couple. Plenty of signs reminding you dogs must be on a leash.
