This is a popular trail and for good reason. The trail is paved and well-maintained. Great choice for a day out.

Great walk. Very crowded though. Lots of bikes and joggers.

Nice path around lake -traffic noise pretty distracting tho

Wilde Lake is gorgeous. Lake Kittamaqundi is very crowded, so beware.

The first part of this is quite nice until you pass Lake Kittamaqundi. Then you are walking on a sidewalk alongside one of Columbia's busiest and noisiest streets. You have to cross several busy intersections, which usually requires you to wait for a while. The lake and Merriweather are nice views. It's not a bad trail, it's just not a trail for me. I like to listen to books and podcasts as I hike, but that's hard to do on this trail. I also don't like stopping waiting for lights.

Very nice trail, but super crowded. Won’t return until after COVID-19.

This is a nice paved walkway around the lake and is great for walking or running during the day. At night, only half of the lake is lighted, which left me feeling a bit uncomfortable when the sun started to set. I don’t understand why only half the lake is lighted, but hopefully they add lights to the other half soon!

Took us a little under a half hour. Very pretty and less populated in comparison to other local lakes.

Paved path, pretty flat, even lit most of the way. Lots of traffic, mostly walkers and joggers but plenty of room still. Not much in the way of hills, not really a trail but a good run.

Great bike ride to teach etiquette to my 9yo and start conditioning for tougher rides.

Pretty lazy paved trail to walk the dog on. A few offshoots along the way. Nice view of the lake. You have to cross over into a city street for a bit but with the map up it was clear where to go. Passed maybe half a dozen walkers and a couple of dogs. Not too busy for a Saturday afternoon.

A nice little loop to wake yourself up or get some activity in Columbia.

Very nice paved trail to walk or jog. There is plenty of wildlife to observe. Takes about 40 mins to walk.

Short (1.4 miles) and paved but very pretty, with some good views across the lake of Columbia Town Center.

Fast and easy walk if you need to get a quick nature fix. The gardens and fountain near the dock are great places to relax and take in the lake while the rest of the trail is relatively flat and kept well maintained. Typically a lot of foot traffic (walkers, bikers, dogs, families). One of my favorite spots for a walk on a snowy day!

It’s nicely paved. A lot of people bring their kids and dogs. Easy walk for my pup. heavily trafficked. Some parts shaded and some not. 2 areas that have enough parking. :)

The trail is very easy and well maintained. The view is peaceful and pretty. Even nestled in the center of a downtown area there is still some native wildlife. I saw a couple of turtles, some ducks and many geese.

the trail was great, but the bathrooms were locked. the 3 yrd I had with me had a hard time getting through the walk bc of that.

Really good, easy trail. Very peaceful and pretty. Great for strollers. It's the best option for a short stroll on a relatively flat paved trail.

Completely paved, the trail around Centennial lake is in great condition and offers views of the scenic lake. Though quite popular, the lake trail ties into several other less-traveled trails in the Columbia Association network and beyond.
