Great bike ride: park at Standley Lake Library. you can climb the berm behind the library to the canal trail then go north to catch Standley Lake Trail (really a service road). Follow the road to the North shore and through the campground to continue West for a bit before turning north across the road (100th St?) and into the dog park for 4 more miles.

Does have a pretty view, but it is absolutely swarmed with bugs unfortunately. The bugs made it hard to enjoy the walk even with bug spray on.

Lovely 1.6 mike loop for walking/hiking with kids. My 3.5 year old loved the woodsy entrance, stroll out onto the dock, running past the farm - the horses were right up by the fence. Lots of interesting flora and many birds as well. No real elevation gain. When clear, nice views of the mountains across the lake.

this Trail is great and long for casual rides, just try to make sure that you stay on the correct path. you'll end up heading through a neighborhood which is kind of boring so try to stay on the marked unpaved Trail

Good daily morning hike

Not a bad little stroll. Easy walk and connects to many of the other trails in the area. It’s great for a dog walk or just to get out for some fresh air without a substantial hike. Saw a coyote on the trail in the morning. Make sure you read the signs on what to do if you encounter one.

The paths leading to the trail (as of today) are slightly flooded. There is a spot to cross the water with logs but otherwise you have to puddle jump. If you try to bring your dog, you're gonna have a gross dog afterward.

It is very beautiful, highly trafficked. I prefer more solitude.

Good for seeing ducks and other birds. Nice view view of the mountains.

What a fabulous trail. Water, nature, Mountain View’s, mixed terrain and other people here and there. It was a fabulous 4 mike hike (3 times around) ...sunny and blue skies in February

I have ridden my bike on this trail dozens of times and love it!

Really enjoyed this trail. I’m always looking for new places to run that offer great scenery. This if a wide crushed rock trail with a number of transitions in grade. The trail as shown in the map from the trail head to S 112th St is just over 1.5 miles one way. It was great to get in a 5k, out and back. Enjoy.

Saw prairie dogs, coyotes and a snowy owl!! I ventured into Standley Lake Park at the west of the trail and it is beautiful! They have paddle craft rentals, tipi and camping and lots of nature programs!

We go all the time with our dog. Love everything about it minus the parking (not always enough) and crowds unless you go at off times. Beautiful place and you can see farm animals :)

Kinda barren and close to busy roads but a decent place to relax during lunch break.

This is one of my favorite places for a longer run. The scenery changes a lot along the way keeping it interesting.

Pretty lake. Too easy of a trail.

It was a great scenic trail, a little windy on the day I went with my dog. A great experience though. Very easy all skill levels appropriate.

It's a pretty spot to fish and walk the trail. We come here often. There are usually a few people here however it is calm and enjoyable. Beautiful sunsets!
