We saw a wide variety of birds along the trail. It was an easy hike with great views of the lake.

Quick and easy hike. A little buggy, but not terrible. Brought both of my dogs with no issues. Should have brought a bathing suit!

very relaxing hike that you can easily make as short or as long as you would like it to be. I saw a fair amount of wild life in the trails and some very beautiful views, especially around the lake.

Very repetitive scenery, not good for views or scenery. Long very plain trail. Not very worth the hike unless that's what your lookin for.

We did a 5.5 mile hike to the lighthouse and back but there's miles more trail. No mosquitos in July.

This trail is under construction and you're not allowed to walk it at this time.

Beautiful run! Take the trail along the shore to see some amazing views!

Nice condition. Except for the view while on the beach, not real scenic.

Well... We did get a little turned around and had to backtrack. But the trail was a great hike.

three main loops. great for biking or take the dogs. the largest loop is worth the trip otherwise just a nice quick exercise.

Excellent paths, well groomed, well marked. The only thing to watch for is the horse trails that cross the foot paths, and the "apples". Otherwise it is a beautiful area, with excellent spots to stop for a picnic or pictures. Great access for individuals with little kids too. You can select your length of adventure! Love that feature. ;)
