The trail has some very nice views an a good portion is paved, but 1/3 of the trail is dirt and poorly marked. The surrounding park is very nice play, especially for kids. The full loop isn't quite worth it though.

This trail is paved and great for kids. You will pass by a few lakes as well. Good for exercise.

Great view of the city and the lake- and beautiful wildflowers too!

Quick, Easy trails with good views of the city on the west side of the trail head with a nice seating area. No dogs but it’s refreshing to not have to fit everyone to be there. Wild life if you pay attention. Bench throughout the area to just enjoy being outside and watching birds.

Very poorly marked trail. we followed the green stripes designating the trail as detailed on the map at Southwest Hospital and ended up at Bagley and Big creek Blvd, two miles east of our starting point. making our "short" 1.5 mile walk with our two year old grandson a grueling trek for all of us. We never saw the lake,which was our whole reason for going. Someone needs to put some signs up and create a map that makes sense. Very poorly thought out. We are veteran hikers with over 50 years experience on trails all over the country and have never had problems like this before.

I walked this trail for the first time - in the cold - and loved every second. Having that awesome view of the lake makes this trail second to none. A+++.

No dogs...the views are nice but each lap is only 1.5 miles. Think I like edge water better.

Cute trail in the winter, definitely will have to come back in the warm weather. Loved the boardwalks.

I gave this a three star because I am sure some people would like this trail, but not me. The trail is nice, but all paved. I prefer to be in the woods on dirt. I prefer hiking shoes to be recommended. This is a running and biking trail. Lots of traffic from joggers and people riding bikes. Again, maybe this will appeal to some people, but not me. I made it a mile in before I lost interest. I turned around and never finished.

I like this one cuz of the boardwalks. Also, they are on some marshy areas which makes it good for birdwatching.

Ok trail if your just looking for some light walking and exercise. The trail is nestled in the city of Shaker so if you're someone like me that likes places more off the beaten path this is not going to be the place for you.

This trail is not moderate, easy as can be. Almost all flat. It's a decent loop around the lake. You'll see a lot of wildlife and hear landscaping equipment at every turn. It's a nice inner city nature retreat though!

Cute little nature preserve nestled in the middle of a couple busy roads! I went here with the intention of hiking, and if you're looking for a longer hike then this is not the place to go. However, if you're looking for a cool little place to casually walk around and observe a refreshing splash of nature in the middle of suburbia, then this is a good place to go :) They take care of the place very nicely, although I thought their trail markers were a little vague. I would definitely go again though and recommend it to others. Just wouldn't be top on my list of places for a good 30 minute hike.
