Harrison Lake is a scenic outdoor gem amidst the flat farmlands of this region. Consider it as a "choose your own adventure" walking, hiking and trail running destination instead of following the exact trail shown on this app. I make frequent visits here to enjoy the outdoors in all types of weather and seasons. Today, I laced up my hiking boots for a 4.5 mile hike around the lake during a November snow and only saw one person. Along the way, I stayed in the grass close to the water as well as meandered through the additional wooded trails. Like usual, I saw a Great Blue Heron that I watched fly across the lake three times during my journey. Most of my visits here include a 2-5 mile run on the trails, grass and/or pavement. On these days, I join a variety of friendly campers, people enjoying the park for the day and sometimes a local school's cross country team. I easily give this trail 5 stars for this region and am grateful for the views it offers in a well maintained atmosphere.
