We loved this trail, it was a blast! The alligator in a bikini was chilling next to the trail.

We only got to see the boat lauch area. Plan on returning this fall to hike around the lake.

Glad I went - nice opportunity to get outside for a quick hike. Keep expectations low but it's always nice to get out into the woods whether it's 2 stars or 5 stars

The southern portion of the park trails are well shaded while the northern portion is mostly open. The lake didn't appear to be big enough for motor craft, but there is a small boat launch. My wife, our 10 mo, and myself made the trek around the lake. The paths were well defined and maintained. There was very little elevation change so it was pretty easy. We would recommend for a relaxed stroll. The info booth and new restrooms are still under construction.
