Description

Start in the main parking lot, head north to pick up the trail as it begins to wind around the lake to the northeast. Follow the well-maintained trail around the lake. The trail passes through wooded and grassland areas. It is generally protected from the wind from being in a valley, except when hiking across the dam.
