I agree with other posters, a tough hike but a good work out! The “lake” was covered in downed logs and reeds. Calling it a creek trail is a misnomer because you can see it, at best, near the bottom and occasionally hear it but there is no access or solid views on the actual trail. I think I would have enjoyed it more if my expectations had been different. There are pretty views and a tree-covered path but there are A LOT of ups and downs making it, what I thought to be, more than a ‘moderate’ hike. Even my 1.5 year old shepherd pup struggled.

Definitely go if you enjoy a good work out. The walk through the forest is beautiful and quiet. The lake is not much of a site, but there are two benches and makes for a good afternoon lunch spot. The entire trail is under tree cover so no direct sun. Would recommend not for the lake itself, but the lovely hike. But do make sure you can handle a significant amount of uphill climbing! I did the hike twice in three days and enjoyed it. Took me 1 hour and 10 minutes up, but at a moderate to fast walking pace.

A beautiful little trail to hit real quick if you’re taking a break at the rest stop.

good,short hike off the rest stop.

Enjoyed the trail in December. Nice way to warm up from a cool car ride.

Trail is closed until further notice. Not maintained and covered with leaves. Apparently they’re logging in the area.

So this was a good hike if you want a good workout and sore legs but not one for the sights.. the lake is actually a swamp with downed trees in it that you can't even get to.. mostly it's a mosquito breeding ground. There was a falls we could hear but not see unless we got super scary close to an unsafe edge. We took kids on it and they didn't have fun with all the uphill, would have been fine but there was nothing rewarding for them at the end. Pretty disappointed but luckily went with a great crew so the company made it fun!
