Great hike! We started mid-morning and only ran into a couple other people. By around noon, there were several groups starting the hike. Mostly shaded with some good views of the lake. Some areas of the trail were overgrown with grass but overall the trail was in good condition.

Beautiful! The steep part is worth it, lovely rocky spot to stop at the top. Perfect hike for a spring day, because you can see the lake so well when the trees are still bare! It was sparkling in the sun. It was very blustery at the peak which was so refreshing!

Well maintained trails with a couple of moderately difficult short hills. Good views from the ridges and cliffs, but they can be breezy.

Beautiful trail with some decent uphill treks and changes in the flora and fauna depending on how high up you go. Great informative signs and easy trail to follow. Encountered several downed trees 2 of which my husband cleared enough for us to continue on the path! Worth the extra effort!

Started this trail from Enee Point. It’s a nice hike, with some steeper inclines. As you climb closer to the top, it’s pretty clear why it’s named Pine Cliff trail, as dry pine needles cover the ground, which added a nice picturesque feature. To reach the peak, you will need to scale some rocks, but that just adds to the adventure! The view of the lake from the top can be a bit covered with greenery, but if you position yourself just right, you can see some very blue water down at the bottom.

Short easy loop hike, it's shaded all the way, very well maintained with signs and no bugs at all.

Always a fun climb up the little cliff covered with blanket of pine needles with a view out over the lake.
