Super fun trail run. Lots of chances to wander around the hills and explore. Will definitely go again.

I found this trail by noticing a body of water while navigating the GPS, and I decided to give it a try that same day. I started my trip from the Denny's on Blossom Hill Rd towards the lake. I'll admit that at first it felt too isolated and abandoned, but as I reached the park the view started to change, and it then it was beautiful. It's a really easy walk, bjt peaceful and with beautiful views.

Great trail well paved but very hot during the day

South rim trail is closed indefinitely, don't waste your time if you are heading there.
