Super flat, easy trail. Nice way to get some mileage in on a lazy day. When we got to the trailhead we saw a family that had just finished trail running and they said they made a new personal best, clocking in at just over an hour. That was probably the most interesting part of the trail. There’s not many scenic views other than the end once you reach the lake. It was way too muddy at the end so we didn’t do the final .3 miles to the end of the trail. The lake was beautiful and there’s lots of cute wildflowers along the trail! There were seriously swarms of mosquitoes it was insane! I had to reapply bug spray twice. Still, not a bad trail.

Fishing

This hike is relatively flat but it’s a fairly long hike. The fishing wasn’t the best either. Scenery is nice though.

Did a few trips on this trail, super easy and brings you back to beautiful Grebe lake. Definitely worth a look.
