enjoyed it. not a sole on it, did get a geocache at the trailhead.

Beautiful hike along the lake. The perfect amount of hills. Only downfall it is heavily populated.

Trail is more difficult than rated. Many steep inclines. Great trail - well marked - friendly people.

Easy trail, but shaded. Good trail on a hot day. Not too busy for a Saturday.

A great five miler, with great views of the lake. Not a difficult hike. I’d recommend this hike for parents with kids, or dogs

Great trail for the local trail runner without going out of town, BUT only in the fall/winter..summer results in massive bug swarms and overgrown trails, most notably poison oak..no real views or anything special other than an old 1938 model car along the trail.

love this trail for taking my 3 year old or great for off leash dog walking as we rarely run into any people. A few hills near the start but mostly a flat trail the rest of the way.

Hiked it yesterday. It is an underwhelming maze of unwanted land. I am impressed they got so much trail wiggled into there, a shorter route back to sanity would be more pleasant. The parking lot was the nicest part. Now, it must be noted, it is nice there is a trail accessible in the area.

It is a nice running trail. Not strenuous at all.

Love this trail!!

This trail is NOT best in the summer. I really enjoy this trail any other time of the year. I am usually a trooper but when I went in the summer I was eaten up by bugs. I have never experienced anything like it. The rest of the time it is pretty peaceful and a nice place to take the dogs.

I went yesterday and hiked this trail. I would never do it again in the summer ever. I got totally eat up my mosquito bites. It was more mosquitos then I've ever seen in my life. It was miserable. And I also got poison oak. I would not recommend this trail in the summer at all. Especially with kids.

Took the family for a hike on this wonderful trail today. Weather was perfect - no sun glasses needed as the natural canopy kept the sun from zapping us. Had to move over about four times to allow cyclists through. It took us an hour and 15 minutes to complete. We didn’t see any snakes this time. Be careful in some places that have roots. Nice easy to moderate trail!! Looking forward to doing in again in the near future.

Great trail with lots of potential, in need of a community service cleanup day.

This trail deserves a good review! Lots of fun obstacles, bridges, and jumps. It also has a pretty sweet pump track that's worth killing your Strava time to play around on. If you haven't ridden here, it's definitely worth it to give it a shot.

Better suited for bikes than hikes. A couple of geocaches if so inclined.
