Nice little loop around the water. We went on memorial day weekend and wasn't aware it's a state park so there were campers sprinkled along the trail near the end which we totally were not expecting to walk through some people's camp sites. I'm guessing this could be a possibility through out the summer season? aside from that enjoyable hike, places to stop and sit on some boulders long the way to enjoy the view of the water. Wear sensible shoes as theres lots of roots on the path and a couple stream crossings.

This is a very natural trail with many rocks and tree roots to watch for! We did have a couple spots where you have to cross the stream via rocks. We did not follow the trail as stated but started with the blue/red trail and switched to the yellow trail. This kept us close to the lake and ended at about 2.2 miles.

This is a very natural trail. There are many rocks and tree roots to watch for. There was also some parts you would have to cross the stream via rocks. We started following the blue/red trail which follows what All Trails has. Then on the far side of the lake we switched to the yellow trail which was closer to the lake but off the stated trail. It was a shorter hike of about 2.2 miles, but still very good!

As I walked the blue and blue/red marked trails, the day was cool, but good for a spring day. my first time here since the 70s, since my family and work kept me away from the area. But I very much enjoyed this day of 7.5 miles. My daily hikes are between 5 and 10 miles per day, as I rebuild myself after serious surgery two years ago. I very much had a good few hours here.

It started off great on the blue trail along the lake but when I got to the rear of the lake the blue kept going further into the woods not looping, so thank God for the All trail GPS, you have to pick up the yellow trail then the red trail for the loop.Besides that it is a nice walk lots of solitude.
